Tortola, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS – Not all archipelagos are created equal. True, specially when you have Sir Richard Branson as a resident owner in one of the islands! BVI, an archipelago of some 60 idyllic islands, islets and cays in the North Eastern Caribbean, provides the perfect weather conditions and winds necessary for kiteboarding. The BVI Kite Jam is an event that marks the archipelago as a mecca for this growing sport.

The inaugural BVI Kite Jam is taking place from March 1-5, a renowned affair presented by the BVI Tourist Board and will include Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island. Richard Branson, an avid kite boarder himself, conceived of the event after staging an impromptu race between Necker Island and Anegada with friends.
