The captains and crew are all gearing up and training for one of the most exciting sailing regattas in the Caribbean and is considered a premier annual racing events.
All the action will take place at Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola, BVI from Sunday March 29 to April 5. Now postponed until a future date.

It has developed a reputation for serious sailing competition and some serious partying. With 7 days of perfect wind, warm water and hot racing, this is an event not to be missed. Over 150 yachts from around the world flock to the beautiful islands of the BVI to race on 3 courses, 18 different classes and of course something for everyone. Yes, of course, the parties which add to the festivities!

A week-long racing adventure in the stunning islands of the British Virgin Islands is one not to be quickly forgotten, as is borne out by the numerous competitors who return annually to soak up the sun and enjoy the joy of trade wind racing. BVI Spring Regatta competitors join the friendly competition from all corners of the world, some racing their own boats with long-time crew and others who choose to bareboat charter from the event’s long-time partners Sunsail and The Moorings, or charter race-ready boats from companies like Global Yacht Racing, LV Yachting Limited, and Caribbean Races.
The Moorings and Sunsail, with their home base in Tortola, have provided excellent racing bareboats and the use of custom-designed catamarans as committee boats for the event.
Sunsail has added new boats to their fleet which is a bonus for sailors looking to charter bareboats – in 2019, five Sunsail 41′ s made up Bareboat 3 division so expect to see that class grow,” said Ian Pedersen, marketing manager. The winner of the Sunsail Bareboat fleet also wins the International Yacht Club Challenge prize – a free Sunsail charter.

“For anyone interested in having a great week sailing and partying with sailors from around the world this is the place,” Friedman added. “To meet and sail against crews from around the Caribbean, US and Europe is really fun and something I don’t get to experience sailing in local club races at home. Beautiful scenery and great sailing in relatively protected waters; it’s a sailors paradise and very special having islands as marks!”

“Our host Nanny Cay, and our Village and Race Committee crew, is set to provide another stellar BVI Spring Regatta for the 49th edition of this fabulous regatta,” Judy Petz, Regatta Director said. “We are thrilled that so many sailors from around the world continue to put the BVI Spring Regatta on their annual calendar and we hope those who have yet to experience this special sailing event make it to our beautiful islands in 2020.”

That feeling of crossing the finish line is one of the most exhilarating feelings I have personally experienced in my racing career.
