Nanny Cay Challenge
The Nanny Cay Challenge was launched in 2010 when yachts visiting the BVI were invited to make an attempt to beat the latest Round Tortola Records.
The current outright and multi-hull record of 2 hours, 33minutes & 40 seconds is held by local BVI trimaran Triple Jack and was set on 30 April 2015. Stephen & Heidi Benjamin´s TP52 Spookie, holds the monohull record of 3 hours, 8 minutes & 43 seconds, which they won at the 2016 BVI Spring Regatta.
Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina, a private-island resort in the British Virgin Islands, will host the Scrub Island Invitational race which takes place Wednesday and is expected to draw up to 50 boats to compete in a race from Nanny Cay Marina to Scrub Island. The exact course will depend on weather and conditions but will wind through many of the lush islands, offering racers breathtaking views as they make their way to Scrub Island. Upon conclusion, Scrub Island Resort will host the crews, their families and friends, and race officials for a special luncheon and party on the Grand Pavilion Patio, Donovan’s Beach and the lower level of the main resort swimming pool. The festive afternoon celebration will feature live music, a barbeque lunch and speciality drinks.
