The St. Thomas International Regatta (STIR), first sailed in 1974, continues in its fourth decade with an exceptional program of serious world class yacht racing that has earned it the status of the ‘Crown Jewel of Caribbean Yacht Racing’. The STIR is renowned for its serious racing reputation that attracts both the latest yacht designs and hottest one-design classes as well as the greatest skippers and crews from across the globe as well as the Caribbean’s hottest rock stars.
