DAY 1: Nanny Cay, Tortola, embarkation
After arrival, boat provisioning and check-in, the Welcome Party will follow, kicking off at 18:30h at Peg Legs. This year, we will be starting and ending in Nanny Cay, a 15 minute drive from Road Town. This is a perfect starting point for us: fully refitted marina, supermarket, restaurant, beach bar, accommodation available for anyone arriving earlier or staying later. It is always so much fun catching up with old friends and meeting the new ones!
DAY 2: NANNY CAY – JOST VAN DYKE, GREAT HARBOUR
Our first day course takes us to Jost Van Dyke. The ritual has been formed during the last two events! After the regatta, we’ll anchor in Great Harbour, close to Foxy’s, as that is where we’ll have our evening feast again. Our afternoon swim and fun time will be in the White Bay. We’ll get over in a local open taxi vehicle. The views from the top of the hill are stunning! White Bay has one of the most beautiful beaches in the BVI. Soggy Dollar bar offers delicious cocktails, fun beach games, in a fun and relaxing environment.
In the evening, we’ll all gather at the Foxy’s for a delicious dinner followed by a dance on the sandy dance floor. JVD is always so much fun!
DAY 3: JOST VAN DYKE – TRELLIS BAY
We will anchor or pick up balls in the SW part of Trellis Bay and crews that want to dine
out can enjoy the Loose Mongoose in the middle of the South part of the bay. The Trellis Bay Market Bar & Grill could also be a great option in the West part of the bay.
DAY 4: TRELLIS BAY – SPANISH TOWN, VIRGIN GORDA
We will book overnight berths in the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour at Spanish Town (water tanks can be re-filled there).
CocoMaya is a great dining option for those that want to eat out and, before that, how about a visit to The Baths, an incredible place for a swim, just one mile to the south of Spanish Town.
DAY 5: SPANISH TOWN – SABA ROCK
We will spend the night at Saba Rock moored on slips or balls. This place was completely rebuilt from scratch after the hurricanes caused significant damage in 2017 and it is now spacious, modern, beautiful and trendy.
We should take advantage of all the facilities which include restaurant, bar with a pool table, lounging area at the back, music, perhaps kitesurfing for some… There will be water available at the slips.
DAY 6: SABA ROCK – BLUNDER BAY
The fleet will moor up in Blunder Bay for gourmet night, using the reserved berths on the
restaurant’s new floating jetty. We will be able to fill water tanks here.
For the Gourmet Night, we all moor together, the crews prepare their special meal for this evening and we all share it on decks, enjoying one of the most special evenings of the regatta. It is a real treat!
For March 2022, I am sure we’ll be inviting Lutz’s team of salsa dance teachers from Lagoon MOET to work with us on those wonderful moves! Get ready …
DAY 7: BLUNDER BAY – PETER ISLAND, OCEAN’S SEVEN YACHT CLUB
This will be our last race of the week and we’ll be sailing to Great Harbour, Peter Island for our Prize Giving dinner and the closing party.
Prize Giving will be celebrated at the wonderful Ocean’s 7 Club where we had a fabulous climax to the 2020 week and it’s now top of our list for 2022 as well! The club is on its own, secluded, in the most beautiful bay. It offers several mooring places on their jetty as well as some mooring balls that can be reserved for HPYF catamarans.
DAY 8: Nanny Cay, Tortola disembarkation
Morning after … 🙂 … We’ll motor back to Nanny Cay for disembarkation. Most of us will be spending a day or so in Tortola, making the most out of freshly created memories of another excellent week!
