The Queen’s Baton Relay Itinerary and Route in the Virgin Islands

The Gold Coast 2018 Queen’s Baton and international crew will arrive from Anguilla into the Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport, Virgin Islands on Saturday, July 1 at 7.00pm.

The international crew will have a rest day on Sunday, July 2.

Full engagement and the official start of the Queen’s Baton Relay kicks off at 9.00am on Monday, July 3 with the Opening Ceremony at the Noel Lloyd Positive Action Movement Park.

The Queen’s Baton has a GPS tracking system so that the world can follow its route. A QBR photographer is documenting the baton’s journey throughout the Commonwealth nations and Overseas Territories to share with the world. It is an opportunity for the VI to showcase its culture, hospitality and beauty. All are invited to come together to Share the Dream by joining in the Queen’s Baton Relay.

The Queen’s Baton will pass through communities on Tortola and Jost Van Dyke on Monday, July 3 and through Virgin Gorda on the morning of Tuesday, July 4, before it returns to Trellis Bay and East End/Long Look, Tortola that afternoon at 4.30pm.

The pace is a gentle jog or walk to enable all members of the community to participate regardless of their age or ability.

The two days of activity will culminate with a closing ceremony and cultural presentation at 6.00pm at the Central Admin Complex on Tuesday, July 4. Local food and drinks will be on sale. All welcome!
