Under BVI blue skies and warm trade winds, the Cape 31 Flying Jenny won class in today’s race around Tortola, also taking home the Nanny Cay Cup for fastest corrected time (4:19:17) – the first time that the race has been sailed in the BVI Spring Regatta since 2019.
Commenting on the race today, Giddon, from the UK, continued, “Today was amazing, we’re sailing in paradise! It was long and a lot of concentration was needed; a long upwind then around the back of the island. The typology of the island was really interesting as was the weather – the clouds which played into the game – and we just kept on pushing. We were over at the start, well we thought we were over, and cleared, the other Cape Adrenalin was in front of us at the beginning, but we kept on eating away using the land and the typology.”
