Tortola, British Virgin Islands (BVI), March 4, 2011: With the long time history of sailing as a primary economic and social activity in the British Virgin Islands, it is only fitting that the territory is known as “The Sailing Capital of the World.” With that in mind, the BVI Spring Regatta, co-sponsored by the Royal BVI Yacht Club and the BVI Chamber of Commerce and Hotel Association, as remembered by the Honourable Ralph T O’Neil, Premier of the Virgin Islands and Minister of Tourism and Finance, has contributed to the economic development of the BVI since their inception. As a tribute to the positive impact on the community and a thank you to the thousands of hours, and thousand of people who have made each year a special experience for all those who participate, the 40th Anniversary commemorative stamp collection was unveiled on Tuesday, 1 March 2011, at a special ceremony at Peg Legs Restaurant located, Nanny Cay Marina and Resort, the host and presenting sponsor of the regatta.
