The BVI’s top regatta includes sailing in Sir Francis Drake channel with hot competition and superb sailing.
Over the years, the Regatta has grown in size and strength due largely to the support of racing enthusiasts around the world, who return year after year to compete, as well as the people, businesses, and Government of the BVI . Today, the Regatta is one of the Caribbean’s premier annual racing events. The BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival has something for everyone, whether you come to race, cruise, or just party!
The Festival kicks off first with 3 days of coastal racing and parties, followed by a Maritime Heritage Day at Nanny Cay. After that, the week culminates with the main event, the Spring Regatta which includes 3 days of non-stop, highly competitive racing action in three different areas in and around Sir Francis Drake Channel with racing divisions for one-design, bareboat, and performance cruising yachts, just to name a few.
Before, during, and after the races, the Regatta Village takes on a carnival-like atmosphere with food, drinks, games, dancing and other forms of entertainment for landlubbers and yachtsmen who converge to eat, drink and make merry.
Racing enthusiasts who have experienced the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival return year after year and they all agree that you have not sailed until you sail the waters of the BVI.
