Regatta Ready! The 51st edition of the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival kicks off today.


The docks at Nanny Cay Resort and Marina are full and ready to roll as 10 classes prepare to race in the 51st edition. Racing starts with the Sailing Festival, a warm-up event, on Tuesday April 2 with the traditional Round Tortola Race, and on Wednesday April 3, the Scrub Island Invitational.


More sailing fun is scheduled for the lay day on Thursday with dinghy and wing foil racing off Nanny Cay Resort & Marina. The BVI Spring Regatta kicks off on April 5 for three days of the Caribbean’s best racing managed by a world-class race management team.

The Round Tortola Race which takes sailors on a 36 nautical mile race around the island of Tortola – conditions permitting, the start transit is in line with the western tip of Peter Island and the Western tip of Nanny Cay.


Racers pass Beef Island, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe, and Guana Island to port as they head round the northern side of the island for a spectacular circumnavigation of Tortola. The current Round Tortola record was set in 2019 by Fujin, the Bieker 53 catamaran owned and skippered by Greg Slyngstad (USA), with the fastest elapsed time of 1:57:16.
