The 48th edition of the Round Tortola Race, sponsored by Nanny Cay, will take place on Saturday 12 January 2019. Entries are invited to compete in Racing, Cruising and Multihull Classes.
The traditional course, required for those attempting the Nanny Cay Challenge for the Round Tortola Record, takes the fleet anti-clockwise around Tortola leaving Beef Island, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe and Guana Island to port. In 2016 an alternative course was introduced to offer competitors more tactical choices with the option to choose their route around Scrub, Great Camanoe and Guana after leaving Beef Island to port.Read More
The 2016 BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival is gearing up to be a “Year Not to Be Missed”, and the kick off will be the Round Tortola Race on March 29th. Over 40 boats have already entered for this year’s race.
Mike Hirst and Mark Cochran established the benchmark Round Tortola Record for a Stand Up Paddleboard in the Nanny Cay Challenge with a surprisingly fast time of 7 hours and 9 minutes.
Hirst and Cochrane left Nanny Cay at 5:04am and landed back at 12:13pm. The pair had been waiting for a calm weather window for some time and today, with very light southerly winds forecast, was the day.
