The 50th anniversary of the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival drew a fleet of boats for five days of competition in a beloved Caribbean playground.
The Cape 31 Flying Jenny won it class in the race around Tortola, also taking home the Nanny Cay Cup for fastest corrected time (4:19:17) – the first time that the race has been sailed in the BVI Spring Regatta since 2019.
“Seventy boats, good friends who have returned, new friends here for the first time, and being able to hug some great sailors on the stage as they receive their awards – it was perfect,” says regatta director Judy Petz. “And the wind; you can work really hard all year long, but if you don’t get a good breeze, it can change the whole event. This year the winds were spectacular.”
