Day Four: 2012 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous

We’d like to congratulate winner Indio for a valiant and dedicated race this year.

We started off the day at Oil Nut Bay with a pirate inspired treasure hunt and an Irish lunch then soaked up the beautiful weather with a beach day. Attendees enjoyed all of the activity that the British Virgin Islands has to offer including: windsurfing, paddle boards, snorkel, hobie cats and laser sailing and scuba diving.

The final day of racing was also filled with excitement. With a lighter breeze and shorter course, the pressure and competition was running high. The yachts started in Virgin Sound, and sent east to a windward mark, then out on a reach to a gybe mark before heading west to the Dog Islands, and back up to a finish line set in Sir Francis Drake Channel roughly between Seal Dog and Nail Bay.
