The sailors that participated in the 2019 BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival could not have enjoyed a better long weekend of sailing in the sunny Caribbean in the British Virgin Islands.
Hosted by the Royal British Virgin Islands Yacht Club and sailed out of the spectacular Nanny Cay Marine, the various members of the J/Tribe enjoyed racing the 48th edition of the regatta with 60-plus boats.
The Race week schedule included the traditional Round Tortola Race for the Nanny Cay Cup, followed by Scrub Island Invitational on day two of racing in the Sailing Festival. Then, three great days of racing followed for the 48th BVI Spring Regatta.
Like they have so many times before, the J/122s enjoyed more racing success in the Caribbean. This time, in CSA Racing 2 class, it was Tony Mack’s J/122 Team McFly/ El Ocaso that took the silver with a 3-2-1-3-4 for 13 pts.
In the CSA Racing 3 class, there was more silver to be garnered, this time by Mackenzie Bryan’s J/100 Bad Girl taking the silver medal with a 1-1-2-2-4 for 10 pts. Fifth in class was Mike Feierbend’s J/24 Bravissimo with a 5-6-3-3-5 for 22 pts.
Finally, in the CSA Performance Cruising, fourth place went to Kieran Duck’s J/120-mod Escaped Aussies~ Jaguar with a consistent 4-4-4-5-4 for 21 pts.
