We consider stochastic three-dimensional rotating Navier-Stokes equations and prove averaging theorems for stochastic problems in the case of strong rotation. Regularity results are established by bootstrapping from global regularity of the limit stochastic equations and convergence theorems. The energy injected in the system by the noise is large, the initial condition has large energy, and the regularization time horizon is long. Regularization is the consequence of a precise mechanism of relevant three-dimensional nonlinear interactions. We establish multiscale averaging and convergence theorems for the stochastic dynamics.
