The anchorages on St. Thomas – South Coast:
Nazareth Bay is situated on St. Thomas Island. The condos on this bay are all situated on a steep hill. Jersey Bay is located in the southern part of Nazareth bay.

In the fall, the Columbus Day Regatta brings sailors to Jersey bay to race in its waters. The Regatta started in 1996 and has become a vital part of the island’s calendar.
