Anchorages at Marina Cay
Welcome to arguably one of the finest and most protected sailing areas on the planet. The Virgin Islands in the Lesser Antilles is a well known and much loved sailors’ paradise.
Located in the northeast Caribbean, 60 miles east of Puerto Rico, the tightly clustered BVIs stretch more than 30 miles around the Sir Francis Drake Channel with low lying Anegada to the north at the furthest distance of 10-15nm from the rest of the island group.
It's the ultimate Caribbean yachting destination for those who already know how to sail and anyone who has yet to learn. With a brand new RYA sailing school at our base here on the BVI capital of Tortola, you can learn to sail from scratch in one of the world's most idyllic settings.
All year round, you can enjoy short hops from one blissful, deep water anchorage to another with easy line-of-sight cruising in steady, comfortable trade winds and calm currents. This is a great choice for people of all ages and abilities – families, groups of friends or couples looking for a romantic getaway. If sailing isn't a passion already, you will fall in love with it by the time the BVI has finished with you.
With a reputation for serious yacht racing and serious partying, this event is non-stop action and fun for all – both on the water and ashore. Before, during and after the races, the Regatta Village takes on a carnival atmosphere with food, drinks, games, live music and lots of entertainment for everyone. Racing enthusiasts return year after year from all over the world for this major event in the world’s yachting calendar to compete in the perfect conditions of warm, steady trade winds and weave their way around long, sandy beaches of these lush green islands.
