Welcome to the St. Croix Yacht Club
Founded in 1952, the St Croix Yacht Club is located on a sensational sandy beach on Teague Bay in the US Virgin Islands, facing the Buck Island National Park. Covering nearly 6 acres, the manicured grounds of the club are host to a fleet of both sailing and motorized vessels and a membership capacity of 500. The open air club house, on a white sandy beach at the foot of our dock, lends itself to the sounds of the ocean and cool tropical breezes. Come join us for a cocktail on the beach or a stroll down our dock.
Members – the membership roster, including contact information, and Board of Directors Meeting Minutes are available under the “Members Only” section. Forgot the password? Call the Office Manager or Club Manager.
