Recommended Caribbean Cruising Regattas?

I know of some big name events like Antigua Race Week - but what other Caribbean racey type events can be recommended for a cruiser with a racing and party attitude (and with no IMS / IRC certificates)?
Any guidance much appreciated

The OECS Yacht Rally begins in St Lucia on December 28th and climaxes on February 11th in Antigua. The yachts will visit St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Grenada on the southern leg; and on the northern leg St Vincent, St Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, Les Saintes, Guadeloupe and Antigua.

The objective of the rally is to provide an incentive for Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) participants to sail to the southern OECS islands, with activities being organized by the National Tourism Authorities and Marine Associations in each island visited.
