The exciting and challenging Round Tortola Race will kick-off the 2015 Sailing Festival on Tuesday March 31st, a warm up to the three-day BVI Spring Regatta. Will the winner be the next boat to break the Nanny Cay Challenge record?
“We added the Round Tortola race as our first day of the Sailing Festival to give everyone a chance to really get to know their boat and the crew”, said Bob Phillips, chairman of the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival. Many of the Sailing Festival boats are chartered boats and some crews are here for the first time. “It’s a warm up event that will give sailors a chance to experience the Sir Francis Drake Channel and our north shore waters of the Atlantic Ocean.”
