The Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) has revealed the 2013 dates of The BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival earlier this week. Despite being held a week earlier in 2013, taking place from March 25-31, The BVI Spring Regatta, hosted by Nanny Cay Resort and Marina will continue to follow the St. Thomas International Rolex Regatta as it has done for many years.
After 40 years the BVI Spring Regatta is looking at a new chapter for the regatta: “The Caribbean has been discovered for the best sailing and some of the best racing in the world,” said Judy Petz, Director of the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival. “In order to help promote Caribbean racing, we will be changing our dates in 2013 to March 25-31 to allow campaign boats to race more of the regattas and sailors who come down for race season will also have the opportunity to attend each event.”
The BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival attracted over 700 sailors in 2012 from 13 different countries. It is an international event that is constantly providing innovative racing and spectacular onshore parties.
