The St. Croix Yacht Club has a junior sailing fleet unlike most other clubs in the world. Sailors have access to twenty-two Optimist Prams, Twelve Club 420s and Six 29er Skiffs at essentially no cost... unlike most clubs that require sailors to provide and maintain their own boats. Our fleet allows any young person the opportunity to sail regardless of financial means.

Our current fleet has served the youth of St. Croix well. Most boats are at least a decade old while some are more than two decades old. Although great care has been taken to maintain the fleet, fiberglass absorbs water and becomes soft overtime. The costs of repairs increase significantly as the boats show their age.

Our goal is to replace and upgrade the oldest boats with newer ones. In addition, we are seeking to add additional "29ers" to the fleet. The 29er Skiffs provide those with the highest level of sailing interest the ability to compete at the Youth World / Junior Olympic level.

Island Youth Receive World Class Sailing Instruction
Updated: April 9, 2017

We are pleased to announce that generous donor support and volunteer efforts have made it possible for the St. Croix Youth Sailing Association ("YSA") to retain the services of a professional coach for the 2016-2017 season.  Santiago Galán “Tino” has been coaching St. Croix youth sailors since 2014 and has agreed to renew his contract for the upcoming season. By making the services of a professional coach available to local sailing programs, the YSA furthers its mission of developing youth athletes that can represent the US Virgin Islands in national & international amateur sport competitions and embrace personal responsibility, sportsmanship, teamwork and an appreciation for the marine environment.

Coach Tino will train St. Croix Sailing Team (SCST) youth on Optimist, Laser, and C420 boat classes under programs operated by the St. Croix Yacht Club (SCYC).  He will also serve as Head Coach for the Good Hope Country Day School (GHCDS) Varsity Sailing Team, which sails C420s in the Caribbean League of the South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association (SAISA) and holds its practices at the St. Croix Yacht Club.
