It’s a new day in the Caribbean
The dawning of a new day on St. Thomas brings with it a new idea in sailing opportunities for everyone. The St. Thomas Yacht Club has introduced a unique concept of sailing instruction, boat access and racing through the opening of the St. Thomas Sailing Center. Now you can sail whenever you want, race on a regular basis, or cruise the waters of the USVI, BVI, and Spanish Virgin Islands all without the need to own a boat.
Learn to sail or learn to race or learn to cruise with the guidance of a professional coach, and be able to do any of these things in one of the most perfect sailing venues and one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Become part of a community of like minded people who share a passion for sailing.
Join the St. Thomas Yacht Club, sign up for Boat Access and you’ll be able to blast around on Hobie Waves, daysail IC-24s or cruise on a 38′ or 44′ monohull whenever and as often as you like at no additional cost beyond the annual Boat Access Fee.
How to Get Here
Coming from off island? You can often find direct flights to St. Thomas from most east coast cities. The Sailing Center is only a 30 minute ride from the airport. There are taxi cabs available for hire as you exit the terminal or you can rent a car from one of the rental car agencies. If you do rent a car, we advise you reserve a car prior to your trip as they tend to book up quickly.
Where to Stay
Some of the best options are to rent a condo or villa in the Cowpet Bay Area. Many excellent choices can be found on VRBO and Airbnb. Look for condominiums at Anchorage, Cowpet West, The Elysian Resort or Cowpet East. All are a short walk from St. Thomas Sailing Center.
