25 - 31 Mar 2019
Hundreds of sailors from around the world will gather in Tortola's Nanny Cay Marina for the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival when it returns for its 48th edition on 25 March 2018.
The festival kicks off with three days of coastal racing and parties, followed by a Maritime Heritage Day at Nanny Cay. The week then culminates with the main event, the Spring Regatta.
Three days of non-stop, competitive racing action will take place in and around Sir Francis Drake Channel with racing divisions for one-design, bareboat and performance cruising yachts to name just a few.
Last year’s festival included the very first overnight Full Moon Race, which saw competitors traverse 64 islands all in one night. This is expected to return for the 2018 edition, alongside the Round Tortola Race and an inter-island pursuit race.
Before, during and after the racing, the Regatta Village takes on a carnival-like atmosphere with food, drinks, games and live entertainment.
The BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival is an ideal time to rent a luxury yacht, whether it’s part of a regatta charter or a yachting vacation. For more information, speak to your preferred charter broker.
