Nanny Cay Rebuilds
They’re back! Hurricane Irma wiped out 75% of the 220-slip Nanny Cay Marina. The Tortola, British Virgin Islands-based facility’s outer marina will have 60 new docks to be completed by early summer. “Once completed, we will have 100 docks in the outer marina with 60 dedicated to short and long-term dockage and 40 occupied by MarineMax,” says spokesperson Alastair Abrehart.
“We have already restored our fuel docks and are serving fuel, water and ice.” However, November is the target date to have docks repaired in the inner marina, which sustained the greatest storm damage. Abrehart says UK-based Walcon Marine is manufacturing the docks, and the first shipment is expected to arrive in May. Nanny Cay plans to host the BVI Charter Yacht Show November 6-9 and the awards ceremony for the ARC Carib1500 Cruising Rally on November 16th.
