The postponement flag is being raised. The 2020 BVI Spring Regatta is now scheduled for October 23-25, 2020. The regatta was postponed by the BVI Government on Friday March 13th, just days from the start of the 49th edition of the event. Multi classes, three days of great racing and a Regatta Village for after racing parties means the stage is set for the 2020 BVI Spring Regatta.

Registration starts Thursday October 22 at Nanny Cay Resort and Marina, the hosting sponsor of the Spring Regatta for over 15 years. “The SI’s are prepared for some challenging racing,” commented Robert Phillips Chairman of the Race Committee. “The three-day regatta will include racing Around Tortola for the Nanny Cay Cup; the 2nd Mount Gay Race Day and courses set using BVI islands as extraordinary nautical marks for long distance or W/L’s. The Race Committee can design multiple races each day creating good courses to fit the day’s weather conditions.”

The event is seeing more one design boats with the new added class of Sports Multihull. The sleek trimarans are fun and fast, and the fleet is increasing and ready for some great competition. “The thing I like best is fierce competition” said 2019 Sports Multihull winner, Mark Sanders on Island Hop. “I really like that the class has taken off in this way, with potentially more boats joining the ranks.”

If you want to experience the full excitement and culture of sailing and don’t have your own boat here, you can charter a racing equipped bareboat from The Moorings or Sunsail. There are many classes to choose from and this year we’ve added a “Fun” class for cruisers.
