March 12, 2014, Tortola, BVI… The BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival, the regatta known for “warm water and hot racing”, is now upping the ante with its “cool parties”. Join us April 3-6 in the Regatta Village and dance in the sands of the beach at Nanny Cay to the sounds of different music genres melding with the warm breezes and the swaying palms. Join thousands of locals, tourists, family and friends as you relax after a day of world class racing around the green islands of the BVI. Reward yourself with an ice-cold Corona or toast a successful maneuver with a frosty flute of Vueve Cliquot as you watch the sun sink into the turquoise waters.
The fun starts with a Mount Gay Welcome Party on Thursday evening. Mount Gay is renowned for both their quality rum that makes any setting more exotic and the coveted red hats that are worn by racing sailors the world over. Before the band begins, an Aerial Performer will dance above the sands as Aragorn’s Fireballs light the night sky. Then the strains of music from Final Faze will fill the village.
Friday, after a full day of some of the best racing in the Caribbean, the boats will be welcomed back to Nanny Cay by the steel pan band, Shooting Stars. That should get everyone into the Caribbean groove and start their night under the stars. Absolut will present the Singing Chef, Al Broderick, and the Last Resort Band. The night will be enhanced with Absolut specials as all can kick back to enjoy life in the islands.
Saturday will be another perfect race day. The evening will commence with the always-popular swimwear fashion show. This will showcase the designs of Kristin Frazer, born and raised on the beautiful island of Tortola. Her Trèfle brand
celebrates the beauty of a global culture and shows luxury swimwear for men, women and children. Then spend the night with internationally acclaimed artist, Quito and the Edge known as the “heart and soul of the BVI” and enjoy Quito’s unique spin on reggae music.
Sunday will wrap up the racing and allow participants to celebrate after three days of fun, but competitive sailing. The Moko Jumbies will dance and play with the young (and young at heart) as visitors and participants gather for the award ceremony. Only the best will take home an award even though all will get to enjoy the final night entertainment by Showtime presented by Heineken. Join the Heineken Team as they provide special activities under the Heineken tent in the village.
With all this, and more, going on, why would you want to be anywhere else? Come to Nanny Cay and enjoy the warm water, hot racing and cool parties!
