St Croix Regatta

A St Croix holiday from US Virgin Islands villas would not be complete without sailing in Teague Bay over the glistening clear waters of the magical Caribbean Sea. The St Croix Yacht Club hosts the annual St Croix International Regatta to much anticipation. The big race takes place on a weekend in early February. Boats come from far and wide to participate in the year’s first major Caribbean regatta that lasts for two exciting days.

St Croix Regatta & Cruzan Rum

The proud sponsor of the St Croix Regatta is Cruzan Rum. The night before the first day of the races, Cruzan Rum hosts an enormous welcoming party complete with live bands on stage and endless rum. The party kicks off near the water and the beach atmosphere is set with dazzling lights and dancing. Find ideal US Virgin Islands villas and enjoy the regatta up close.

The races begin promptly at 10am on Saturday and Sunday after the large communal breakfast. Boat classes include Beach Cat, IC-24, Performance Cruiser and Spinnaker Racing to name a few.

During the races St Croix puts its best foot forward for it guests. Markets, sightseeing tours and children’s games are provided for extra entertainment. The evenings are filled with open air dining and dancing until dawn under the clear starry skies of the Caribbean. After the festivities of the St Croix regatta die down, would it not be nice to lie your head down on a soft pillow in private US Virgin Islands villas?
