Entrants include 2011 SIOR champion Wiley Rogers and the U.S. World’s Team who will compete in the Optimist World Championships in the Dominican Republic in July.

'The schedule of international regattas this summer created an opportunity for sailors to come to the SIOR as well as train in the Virgin Islands,' says regatta director, Margo Lynch. 'We have teams arriving early to train and teams that are staying late to take advantage of the great sailing conditions in the USVI.'

The Sea Star Clinic run by top international coaches from Optisailors.com will focus on starts, tactics, and strategy.

Over 12 teams are expected for the Sea Star Team Race. Entry fee is $160 per team of four sailors. Registration closes at 5 p.m. on June 20th.

The entry fee for the SIOR is $250 with final registration on June 21st. The entry fee includes an event T-shirt, registration ‘goodie’ bag, and all meals from Thursday June 21st Welcome Party through Sunday’s Brunch.

Shore side activities include an opening Parade of Nations, a Welcome Party, raffle, 20th Anniversary Party, ice cream social and Caribbean-themed night that includes fire dancers. The fun culminates with a beachside brunch and Awards Ceremony on June 24th.

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. The Sea Star Perpetual Trophy will be inscribed with the names of the sailors on the winning team racing team.
