Save the Date! The 2013 International Optimist Regatta (IOR), presented by Negawatt Business Solutions, and Sea Star Clinic and Sea Star Team Race will take place June 17 to 23, 2013.

Three clinic days, team racing and three race days for beginner and advanced sailors alike makes this one of the most instructive and competitive junior sailing regattas. Plus, it’s a great way to tune-up skills for the Optimist North Americans a month later in Bermuda.

A record number and highly international fleet of sailors competed in the 20th Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta. -  Dean Barnes  
Over 100 8- to 15-year-old junior sailors are expected to attend this St. Thomas Yacht Club- and Virgin Island Sailing Association-hosted and Caribbean Sailing Association-sanctioned regatta.

Register now at Regatta Network.

Cost of the clinic is $300 for non-U.S. Virgin Islands’ registrants and $275 for U.S. Virgin Islands’ residents, and includes breakfast and lunch for the three days. Clinic registration closes on May 15th.

Entry fee for the team racing is $160 per team of four sailors. Registration closes at 5 p.m. on June 19th.

The IOR entry fee for the IOR is $225 until May 15th and $250 after this date. Sailors registered prior to May 15th will have their names entered into a special drawing to win top-notch prizes. Final registration takes place June 20, 2013. The entry fee includes an event T-shirt, registration ‘goodie’ bag, and all meals from Thursday dinner through Sunday’s Brunch.

Trophies will be awarded to the top five sailors in each fleet and top three overall. Additional trophies include the Peter Ives’ Perpetual Trophy, the Chuck Fuller Sportsmanship Award and the top female sailor.
