BVI Spring Regatta 2003
Billed as 'two great events in one' this event starts on Monday, March 31 with a welcome party at regatta hosts Nanny Cay Marina.
Three days of destination cruising and racing throughout the BVI follow leading up to the main three-day regatta starting on Friday, April 4th.
"It's a flexible format for those who want to see more of the BVI," explained Bob Phillips, chairman of the BVI Spring Regatta committee. "People can participate in the entire seven-day BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival, just the four-day event, or just the three-day regatta."
Nanny Cay Marina will once again be hosting the regatta and the majority of competitors docking at Nanny Cay will be put on A, B, C and D docks. The smaller boats such as the J/24s and Melges will be directly outside the village on the floating docks next to Peg Legs Landing.
CBBS and CORT
The BVI Spring Regatta will once again be joining with St Maarten's Heineken Regatta (March 7, 8, 9) and Antigua Sailing Week (April 27 - May 3) for the fourth Caribbean Big Boat Series (CBBS) for yachts 60-feet and over.
As well as the CBBS, the BVI Spring Regatta is the last leg of the Caribbean Ocean Racing Triangle (CORT) series - first stop is the St Croix International Regatta (February 15-17) and the second leg is the Heineken International Cup in Puerto Rico (March 14-16.
