Wind was the word in St. Thomas

The real story of the 43rd St. Thomas International Regatta (STIR) was wind. Lots of it. Gusts blustered over 30 knots all three days with 6 to 8 foot seas. Yet combine these conditions with 80-degree weather, bright sun and bathwater warm turquoise seas and it's a recipe that racers on the 67 entered boats relished. In CSA Spinnaker Racing 3, Puerto Rico's Jonathan Lipuscek on his J/105, Dark Star, successfully defended their title.  Event website
