WORLD NEWS Regatta participants enjoy new facilities BVI: Participants in this year’s BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival at Nanny Cay, Tortola, were able to enjoy some newly completed renovations at the marina and hotel. Change the dates! USA: The 2020 International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC) will return to Fort Lauderdale, Florida for its 18 th year. In a slight shift from previously announced dates, it will now follow a Tuesday to Thursday schedule on 14 th -16 th January. Phase one of the inner marina (four docks) was completed by February, and work on the additional four docks is ongoing. The new outer marina is complete, with 100 slips and a Sol fuel dock which serves diesel, petrol, ice and water. The inner marina also has a fuel dock. Damage caused to the inner marina by Hurricane Irma in September 2017 called for replacement of all docks. Overall docking capacity was reduced by 75% at the time. Walcon Marine, which has a long standing association with Nanny Cay, was commissioned for the replacement pontoons, and has been manufacturing and shipping them from the UK to meet the required schedule. Considerable emphasis has been placed on the environment for the marina rebuild plans and event hosting facilities. The Eco-Lounge at the Regatta Village featured furniture made from recycled locally collected plastic, and youth sailing dinghies were strategically positioned in the islands as collection points for any plastic bottles used by regatta participants. A small number of hotel rooms have so far been completely refurbished at the Nanny Cay Resort. Top floor rooms are being reconfigured with more space and better interior layout and solar water heating and new energy-efficient air-conditioning systems are also being installed. Argo to develop new marina TAIWAN: Argo Yacht Club in Tainan is developing a new marina as the centrepiece of a comprehensive development project. A ground breaking ceremony was held in January. Plans involve integrating the marina and yacht club with a complex of high-end restaurants, shops, hotel and villas. The marina, which will be designed and built by Poralu Marine, will meet the highest international standards featuring water and electricity, fuel, pump-out and advanced anti-fire safety equipment throughout. The marina has been designed to withstand the tropical storms and typhoons that frequently hit the island and will be built in phases. The first stage of the 200-berth facility will accommodate 60 boats of 12 to 50m (40 to 165ft). Poralu will install the marina with its local partner Royal Regal Waterfront Development. It is the second large scale project undertaken by the partnership in Taiwan, the first being Taiwan International Yacht Club in Danshui. - May/June 2019 7
