The BVI tourist board and Nanny Cay marina play host to one of the Caribbean’s more relaxed regattas. Throughout the week, there is a variety of racing from round the cans, to pursuits and even a “Round Tortola” race. In the middle of the week is a lay day, giving you the chance to lime on a beach, or stick on your walking boots and explore some of the island’s lush hidden secrets.

The Boat

Kraken (ex Telefonica Black, Volvo 70) is a stripped out racing boat with very few luxuries, so please expect high side hot bunking, freeze dried food – as the galley consists of a sink and 1 camping stove for boiling water and a very exciting gimbled heads!

On Kraken we like to be fully inclusive and give amateur sailors the chance to participate in all aspects of sailing the boat – we can assure you; you will not just be sitting on the rail.
