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.”
One Design Area Ready for Plenty of Action
“One of the challenges faced by events catering to a huge variety of classes encompassing many different types of boats is delivering racing experiences that satisfy the different needs. BVI Spring Regatta has wisely chosen to offer different racing areas for all the different style of race boats that make the annual racing extravaganza”, noted Jaime Torres, owner of the successful Melges Smile and Wave.
He is happy to know that David Kerr will be the PRO again in 2015. “Having a dedicated PRO and One Design keelboat course has proven to work amazingly well for the Melges 32 and the IC24s at the BVI SR. The courses were the right length and type for high performance one design keelboat racing and the PRO was very responsive to the leadership from the classes. We expect 2015 to be better than ever with more ICs and Melges 32 than in previous years”, he added.
