The course for the Scrub Island Invitation begins off Nanny Cay in 12 to 15 knots from the south that had been steady all throughout the day. The Racing Division was won by Tony Mack along with McFly, his team on their J/122 El Ocaso. They defeated Liquid, the sister-ship only by 48 seconds.
It is hard to get, much harder to leave, and almost impossible to forget it. This might be cliché but this is something that Tony Mack and Sally, his wife would like to keep in mind when they reminiscence about BVI and after 42 of the strongest cruise races the course up to Scrub Island.

The very first Round the Rocks Race will offer a warm-up in advance of St. Thomas International Regatta 2016, to be held 25th to 27th March, in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. This is a 1 day independent event of St. Thomas International Regatta that features its very own point-to-point course across the St. John Island, break up scoring as well as special prize-giving.
Chuck Pessler, the director of the regatta, told that the sailors told that they want more racing and they were known for their pro race management. Put the two together it makes the great scope to offer a new one1day race. Those who do not want to or could not race are not penalized since scores in the Round the Rocks race does not count toward the St. Thomas International Regatta. This is only another way to sail in their lovely Unites States Virgin Islands waters and have yet another way to win.
As of now, entries include a trio of Gunboat 60s. These are Robert Alexanders Fault Tolerant, Stephen Cucchiaros Flow and Phil Lotzs Arethusa.
Round the Rocks Race course is a travel of the nineteen-square mile island of St. John. This is a path that provides a huge range of voyaging challenges against the lovely backdrop of an island which is two-thirds pure national park. Crews will require having on their toes with frequent tacks by offshore cays, cross currents as well as winding shifts across the east end and ski race -like atmospheric condition in the downwind.
