Welcome to the official website of the Superyacht Racing Association. The organization continues to focus on the mission established in 2011: “enhancing the enjoyment of superyacht owners through safe sailing and fair racing.”

We have been busy addressing the issues raised at the 2017 Annual General meeting and executing the approved voting items (meeting agenda, exhibits and minutes found on the Member Meetings Page).

We have also been very active following the news from the Caribbean and assisting where we can. Hurricanes Irma and Maria wreaked havoc and there is no denying the fact these were horrible storms that did significant damage to some of the islands. The British Virgin Islands and St Barths took direct hits and the immediate news releases and photos were very sobering. Fortunately, there was very little loss of life reported. The recovery news is very encouraging and we are buoyed by the progress, commitment and energy of the people.

As of this writing, both the Antigua Superyacht Challenge and St Barths Bucket have announced that those events will take place as scheduled. Antigua was not in the path of either hurricane. The 2018 SYRA Annual General Meeting will take place in St Barths as in recent years. There has not yet been an announcement regarding the YCCS Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta. With the extensive damage sustained by the British Virgin Islands, alternative venues are being contemplated.

We take this opportunity to thank you for your expressions of concern and support. You have our promise to keep you informed going forward in the ‘News section’ of this website as the winter season shapes up.

Sincerely yours,
Peter Craig
SYRA Executive
