Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Virgin Islands, the BVI Spring Regatta and sailing festival is a five-day celebration of sailing and camaraderie, with the Caribbean’s yachting community banding together to welcome competent sailors from around the world.
The BVI Spring Regatta all kicks off from the Nanny Cay Marina on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. The racing is varied and interesting including a round Tortola race and pursuit racing.

Accommodation is provided on board for the duration as well as all the regatta entry fees, lunch whilst sailing and berthing costs.
They came 3rd in class in 2012 and 2nd in class in 2008 so that’s always and incentive to come back and have another crack at it. The British Virgin Islands are truly stunning too and this event has such variety there’s something for everyone.
