ST. THOMAS — Nearly two dozen teams, with skippers hailing from the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the United States and Sweden are ready to take their start today in the inaugural St. Thomas Yacht Club Invitational Regatta.

COVID-19 protective measures — such as social-distancing via crew limited to double-handed on IC-24s and single-handed on Hobie Waves, plus face buffs as required racing attire — will be in effect for this two-day event as directed by the USVI Government’s Open Doors phase.
