The flag of the British Virgin Islands continues to fly high across the region, as local athletes earn top spots in their respective fields.

Most recently, over the weekend on Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9, young sailors from the BVI were able to gain podium finishes in the VIODA Optimist Championship Regatta.

The event, which was held in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, saw participation from a team of five sailors from the BVI.

Top Places went to BVI’s own Samuel Allen, who finished first in the White Fleet, and Rayne Duff, who finished third in the Red Fleet.

The other members of the BVI team were Karl Challwell, Ryan Lettsome and Antonio Cisneros.
