Scrub Island Resort to Host Scrub Island Invitational during the 2017 BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival

scrub2Every year an average of 110 yachts and sailors, friends and families from all over the world travel to the pristine waters of the British Virgin Islands to celebrate one of the largest regattas and shore side entertainment in the Caribbean — the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival.

For a second consecutive year in a row, Scrub Island will host the March 29th Scrub Island Invitational, which is expected to bring in 50 boats to race from Nanny Cay Marina to Scrub Island. 

The exact course will depend on weather and coastal conditions, but the course will make its way through many of the lush islands, offering racers breathtaking views as they make their way to the finish line at Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina.  After the race, Scrub Island will host a special luncheon for crews, families and friends on the Grand Pavilion Patio, Pavilion Beach and lower level of the main resort swimming pool. The festive afternoon celebration will feature the awards, live music, a barbeque lunch and specialty drinks. What could be better than that?!

“We’re excited to once again host the Scrub Island Invitational, which was very well received last year and will no doubt draw even bigger crowds this year,” said Joe Collier, president of Mainsail Lodging & Development, the owner and operator of the resort. “It’s a great event for participants and an opportunity to showcase our private island resort to some who may not be familiar with everything we have to offer on Scrub Island.”
