If your bucket list includes having a drink at the 2017 Favorite Yachting Bar in the Caribbean, then tick that box with us March 23 to 25 at the St. Thomas International Regatta. Announced on Jan. 3, 50° North, creators of Wight Vodka and Scuttlebutt Europe, announced that the STIR-host St. Thomas Yacht Club won its annual contest in a special Caribbean category to recognize bars that were hit by the hurricanes last fall.
“It’s an honor to have received this recognition, especially as the club is still recovering from the after effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria,” says regatta director, Bill Canfield. “As a result, this will not be our biggest STIR, but we can guarantee everyone a special time. For those who have never visited, Cowpet Bay is a beautiful place to finish a race and the club and its bar are located beachfront here. Plus, for those that are long timers, think back to your first Caribbean regatta and what a great experience it was. We are offering this same vibe this year with an emphasis on ‘simple fun and great sailing.’ That’s why we love it here!”
