Jamming on Necker

Hot off the press! In 2010 Necker Island will host a Celebration Week in the first week of March to coincide with the inaugural British Virgin Islands Kite Jam, supported by the man himself, Sir Richard Branson and sponsored by the BVI Tourism Board.

Kite Boarding lovers from around the globe will descend on the British Virgin Islands for a series of races and freestyle competitions. The event was an idea born from our very own hardcore kitesurfer Richard, while he cruised the 8 miles between Necker Island and Anegada.

We can't wait to help host this event, which will take place from March 1st to the 5th. Professional names such as Andre Philip, Susi Mai and Tuva Jensen will be eyeing up the Caribbean waves, but all levels are welcome to participate, from beginners to seasoned athletes. The event will conclude with a party and award-ceremony on Moskito Island, not far from Necker.

Our Celebration Week starts on the 27th February, which gives you some extra time to practise!
