The BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival 2013 will take place a week earlier next year, with regatta dates set for 25th to 31st March, as announced this week by the Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA). In cooperation with other regattas, The BVI Spring Regatta, hosted by Nanny Cay Resort and Marina will move to the earlier date, but will continue to follow the St. Thomas International Rolex Regatta as it has done for many years.

After 40 years the BVI Spring Regatta is looking at a new chapter for the regatta: 'The Caribbean has been discovered for the best sailing and some of the best racing in the world,' said Judy Petz, Director of the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival. 'In order to help promote Caribbean racing, we will be changing our dates in 2013 to March 25-31 to allow campaign boats to race more of the regattas and sailors who come down for race season will also have the opportunity to attend each event.'
The BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival attracted over 700 sailors in 2012 from 13 different countries. It is an international event that is constantly providing innovative racing and spectacular onshore parties.
