The best sailing in the world is a big part of British Virgin Island holidays, and every year, the main event is the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival.
This world-class regatta runs from is always the highlight of the international sailing season. In 2012, there were entrants registered from the U.S., South American and as far away as Russia and Croatia.
For anyone who loves sailing, British Virgin Islands holidays are more than a dream come true. this year, the Regatta Chairman Bob Phillips described the event as seven days of fun and a true celebration of all the British Virgin Islands has to offer.
The event always breaks down into a four-day Sailing Festival and a three-day Regatta. However, for most visitors, the highlight will be all the great parties on shore.
A villa Virgin Gorda is the ideal island for Caribbean family vacations to see the sailing. Every year, the sailing festival kicks off with the Bitter End Cup, a race to the Bitter End Yacht Club, where there are plenty of parties and events. The pub at the Bitter End is one of the most popular places in BVI to watch all the action.
Tortola villas are another good place to be for the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival, as the sailing festival also features a race to Nanny Cay Marina. The Sailing Festival concludes with a return race through the beautiful islands to Tortola. As well, most of the sailing fleet will be moored at Nanny Cay for the Regatta portion of the festival.
There are plenty of tropical island villas available in both Tortola and Virgin Gorda, so you can combine all the comforts of home, with an exotic locale, a world class festival, and some of the best sailing in the world. Why not celebrate sailing in BVI by planning a visit this March?
