International Rolex Regatta

International Rolex Regatta (St. Thomas Yacht Club, 6224 Yacht Club Road, St. Thomas) – organized by the St. Thomas Yacht Club and sponsored by Swiss luxury watch maker TAG Heuer (along with Cruzan Rum and Presidente beer), this is a popular yachting event held annually in late March — attracting competitors from USA, various Caribbean islands, Europe, and as far as Australia. During the time the Regatta is held, it gives St. Thomas a “jet set” flair normally associated with Miami and the South of France.

 

If you aren’t a sailor but enjoy sailing, the International Rolex Regatta is a great event for the casual spectator. Sailboats typically race off the downtown waterfront — providing observers with great opportunities to watch some world-class sailing. Visitor and residents can also attend some of the events scheduled around the Rolex, including live bands and dancing.
