Perfect time for the perfect gift… to you.
The big question many sailors have is “how can I race in the BVI Spring Regatta if I don’t have a boat in the islands?” From the world famous home of all chartering, The Moorings, has a fleet of charter boats that will fill the bill, so you can book a boat, book a flight and gather a crew and come and have a great time racing at the 2016 BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival. From chartering a boat to booking a complete package, there is certainly an option to suit every need. Both Sunsail and Moorings have a full fleet available for charter on the island.
“The Moorings is proud to continue our longstanding sponsorship of the BVI Spring Regatta, as well as the St. Thomas International Regatta. Our Catamarans are the perfect platform from which to enjoy the spectacle of the races, whether they be used by the Official Race Committee or by the participants themselves. It is a thrill to be a part of one of the British Virgin Islands’ most prestigious and time-honored traditions, and one we look forward to supporting for years to come.” Said Ian Pedersen, Marketing Manager, The Moorings – North America
Sunsail and Moorings both offer a wide variety of boats to rent for the event. With the option of renting the boat with a skipper, this is the perfect solution to racing if you do not have as much experience. Monohulls, as well as Catamarans, are available and can also be used as motherships to keep everyone close for the week of racing. Sunsail sponsors the International Yacht Club Challenge, which you can join with a member of any yacht club on the boat.
Other companies offer racing boats for spinnaker classes. Global Yacht Racing, Performance Yacht Charter, and Ondeck offer full race boats complete with high performance racing wardrobe and regatta packages including flights, hotel and boat rentals. Check the charter options on our web site for full details of all boats.
The BVIs have various types of racing around the idyllic islands, mixed in with some up and downs. We include separate classes and race areas that make for very challenging courses and good competition.
But don’t wait until the last minute. This extremely popular option sells out quickly, so call your friends, put your team together and join in on the most beautiful racing in great conditions at BVI Spring Regatta, March 28- April 3, 2016.
