US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association
The St. Thomas Sailing Center is pleased to host the 2nd Annual Hotel and Tourism Association Regatta on April 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the St. Thomas Yacht Club. Sailboat racing is a great way to build camaraderie, work as a team, have fun and enjoy our beautiful waters. We will provide the boats and an expert coach on each boat. Bring four people from your company to race, no sailing experience is required, and wear your company/team T-shirts!
This year, we are providing right IC-24 sailboats for the regatta. Five are already reserved with three boats still available! The Westin, St. John will be defending their championship title and we’d like to have a full roster of challengers.
The entry fee for the Regatta is $250, which includes your boat, coach and light breakfast. There will be a cash bar and the Galley will be open for lunch. Other employees and guests are welcome to join the teams at the yacht club, enjoy the deck, have lunch and watch the awards ceremony.
The schedule is as follows:
9 a.m. – Check in at St. Thomas Yacht Club, complimentary light breakfast
9:15 – 9:45 a.m. – Classroom session on sailing and racing
