BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival, presented by Nanny Cay Resort and Marina, will be held from 26 March to 1 April 2012.

The promotional kick off takes place this week at the longest running and perhaps the biggest yachting event in the world, Cowes Week. Joining forces with Sunsail, Nanny Cay and Gill, BVI Spring Regatta will launch it’s annual campaign to make sure that the thousands of sailors and visitors to Cowes mark their calendars that in eight short months, the action will be on the other side of the pond.

With the successes of last year’s 40th Anniversary, three new videos are on line. The first highlights the inaugural Gill BVI International Match Racing Championship; the second features Sir Richard Branson sharing his enthusiasm for the BVi and this event and the third is the 2012 promotional video featuring ten reasons why the BVI Spring Regatta is a 'must do' event.

According to event director, Judy Petz, 'Somehow each year we squeeze in just a little more. This year we will expand the International Yacht Club Challenge raced with Sunsail’s fleet and include intercollegiate sailing teams among the yacht club teams from around the world'

Bob Phillips, Chairman, is pleased to continue the addition of Level three match racing, 'Sponsored by Gill, match racing provides the purest type of racing with one-on-one competition in equal boats. It’s a different type of racing and we’re excited to offer this fast-paced competition right off the beach at Nanny Cay' Those that were lucky enough to watch last year, not only were entertained but also had the opportunity to pick up a few tips as Denise Holmberg, Peter Holmberg’s wife, provided enlightened commentary.

Seven days of racing, five separate events, and loads of fun in the Caribbean. Sounds like a regatta and party you wouldn’t want to miss.

Warm Water - Hot Racing.
Guaranteed.
