BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival was held from 25 to 31 March.
The Regatta itself is 3 days of racing Friday to Sunday.
Conditions this year got very wet and windy, sailing jackets were the best accessory for evening wear in the Village.
The Marina at Nanny Cay gets very little wind which makes it hard for boats like “Diva” who don't have an engine to get out. They devised a very novel way with one of the crew sitting on the bow paddling!!

Lagoon 440 – 2005
Current price $369,000
Lagoon's designers have surpassed themselves with the 440 model, proving how well the space can work on a catamaran platform.
The raised, central flybridge on the Lagoon 440 provides the helmsman with a clear all-round view, whilst keeping the outdoor living space clear of lines.
The aft cockpit is very well protected by a solid bimini that forms part of the deck moulding. A third cockpit in the bow is a great place to sit in the breeze and enjoy a sundowner.
