It’s 50 days until the start gun for the first day of racing in the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival.

A highlight is always the diversity of boats that participate across many classes – this year there will be some 18 classes – including boats who are in for the very first time, like the newly launched all-carbon HH66 NALA. Others, such as the J122 El Ocaso which has competed in the regatta for the past 10 consecutive years, just keep coming back for more.

A course change for 2016 race gave competitors more tactical decisions; the course still took the racers anti-clockwise around Tortola but gave them the option to sail between Scrub, Great Camano and Guana Islands and Tortola or head further out to sailing outside them all. However, with the inner route taking 7 miles taken off the course, everyone went that way, thoroughly enjoying the change and the challenge of navigating through some tricky reef formations and an energetic current.

While everyone else was tucking into turkey yesterday, our marina team together with Husky Salvage was hard at it dealing with a small issue on the new docks. Nothing that boats, people, ropes, winches, and bouncing couldn't fix.
