The BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival has published its 2024 Notice of Race and opened registration. The week-long event takes place April 1-7 with 5 days of racing in the beautiful waters of the British Virgin Islands with a unique combination of marks and islands for the courses.

The seven-day event starts on Monday April 1 (no joke) with the Sailing Festival opening day festivities and skipper pack collection. The Sailing Festival, a warm-up event, runs Tuesday April 2 and Wednesday April 3, with fun, relaxed racing on the agenda. On April 2, the traditional Round Tortola Race will take sailors on a 36 nautical mile race around the island of Tortola. On April 3, the Scrub Island Invitational will take sailors some 12NM upwind to a fabulous island party hosted by Scrub Island Resort. The relatively short race to Scrub Island gives sailors plenty of time to enjoy the outstanding Scrub Island hospitality.

On Thursday April 4, a lay day will provide sailors, friends, and families the opportunity to explore the local BVI waters, or join in for more sailing fun with dinghy and wing foil racing off Nanny Cay Resort & Marina. It also provides an opportunity for those who are joining just for the BVI Spring Regatta to register and get their racing boats and team ready for the big event: the 51st BVI Spring Regatta, which kicks off on April 5 and runs through April 7, for three days of the Caribbean’s best racing managed by a world-class race management team.

The Regatta attracts a diverse fleet of boats in addition to a strong bareboat fleet, and whether sailors participate in all five races of the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival, part or all of the Festival, or the three-day Regatta, there is something for everyone, on the water and shore-side.

Without its sponsors, the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival simply would not happen. The event is proud of its 2024 sponsors: Nanny Cay Resort & Marina, BVI Tourist Board, Mount Gay, Scrub Island Resort, Marina & Spa, The Moorings, Sol, Portland Ship Yard, Sea Hawk New Nautical Coatings Inc./ Akzo Nobel.
