Watch: ARC 2019
For the 2024 BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival the waters off the British Virgin Islands will be filled again with competitors from across the globe coming to the warm waters. The sheer natural beauty of the islands, the pristine crystal waters and consistent trade winds makes this a very special place to race and is one of the Caribbean’s best annual race events.
This week long festival will take you all around the beautiful British Virgin Islands and we will be taking part in both the two day Sailing Festival and the three days of the Regatta itself. Between the Festival and the Regatta will be a lay day to give you the opportunity to explore the beautiful surroundings.
This is a great experience that keeps bringing the same faces back each year, proving just how popular it is with the sailing community.
The BVI Spring Regatta follows straight after the St Thomas International Regatta.
*** The BVI Spring Regatta 2024 has been confirmed for April 1st – 7th, however, the exact schedule has yet to be released. We do not believe the dates below will be altered, but please occasionally check this page as we will be updating it as soon as the full official schedule is released.

Sailed with them across the Atlantic in 2019.
The boat was well taken care of, had enough safety gear. Neil -the skipper- was awesome, I learned a lot. Recommended.
