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 more than 150 sailing and motorized vessels and a membership of nearly 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 Roserene or Manger Jens.

The St. Croix Yacht Club Summer Sailing Program strives to create a fun and safe environment where kids can learn and come to love the sport of sailing. We emphasize the importance of team work, respect, and safety in daily lessons. Our number one goal is to pass on our passion for the sport to the next generation of St. Croix Sailors.
Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced classes will be held at the St. Croix Yacht Club for youth ages 8 to 18. All Classes will be taught by U.S. Sailing Certified Instructors. Non-members are welcome, scholarships are available. Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Appropriate deposit must accompany application for each session being reserved. Spaces are limited. Sign up as soon as possible.
Classes begin June 24. There will be three 2-week sessions and one optional 1-week session in August. The classes will run from 9:00 to 3:00 Monday through Friday.
