By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 23, 2017

Even in the wake of last month’s storms, the British Virgin Islands remains the sailing capital of the world.

In a sign of its renewed strength, the BVI will play host to the important annual BVI Charter Yacht Society Boat Show in November.

The Charter Yacht Show will take place at the Nanny Cay Resort and Marina from Nov. 7-10.

“The BVI Charter Yacht Society Boat Show gives yacht brokers an opportunity to view the yachts that sail our waters as well as experience what their guests enjoy while in the British Virgin Islands,” said Sharon Flax-Brutus, the British Virgin Islands’ Director of Tourism.

Flax-Brutus said the destination had recognized that its yachting sector would be the first to “open for business.”

This year is the 36h edition of the annual show.
