On behalf of the St. Thomas Yacht Club, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 St. Thomas International Regatta. The St. Thomas Yacht Club has been hosting this prestigious event for over 40 years and we are very proud of this year’s STIR team. Our team is very excited to provide some of the best sailboat racing in the world. Last year’s event put both the sailors and staff to the test with extreme winds. We look forward to this year’s challenges and want to make sure everyone has a great time enjoying our warm waters and Island charm.
Of course, we could not do this without our volunteers, judges and sponsors. A special thank you to all that make this event one of kind, the “Crown Jewel” of Caribbean racing.
This year we have been very busy enhancing our sailing platforms. We now have our St. Thomas Sailing Center in full force. It is a unique place where you can sail without boat ownership. Classes and courses are offered all sailors, from first timers to hardy veterans. Events such as North U clinics and our weekly race schedule can be found at our web page www.styc.club. Please don’t be shy to call and say hi to our new coordinator, Dave Franzel.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the water. Please do contact us if we can assist in logistics.
Daniel Nicolosi, Commodore
