Fly into Beef Island via Puerto Rico or St. Thomas and it’s a short ride by water taxi to Scrub Island. There are no vaccination requirements in place, and there is also no requirement for COVID testing prior to returning to the United States.

Fuel and Provisioning is a Snap

A concierge service awaits in Scrub Island for call-ahead provisioning, and there will be fuel available at discounted rates during the tournament. Fuel is also available in nearby Virgin Gorda as well.

A Family-Friendly Environment

Bring the wife and kids for this one! Scrub Island has a wonderful spa and the watersports—snorkeling, diving, sailing and more—are second to none.
