Corporate & Group Events
Whether you are entertaining clients, welcoming visitors or having a company outing, we have the fleet and staff to make your event memorable. At the St. Thomas Sailing Center we are dedicated to providing top notch sailing instruction, boat access, racing programs as well as corporate and group charters. We are located at the St. Thomas Yacht Club on the beautiful waters of Cowpet Bay in St. Thomas, USVI.
Our staff is comprised of sailing coaches who are experienced in working with adults of all sailing abilities. Many have sailed in world class events and trans-oceanic passages. Most importantly, they are friendly, patient and skilled at making sure the customers have a safe and enjoyable experience.
The Galley Restaurant can cater your event.
There are three events to choose from: the Day Sail, the ‘Round the Island Race and the Regatta. All events are held on our fleet of evenly matched IC 24 sailboats, designed and built right here in St. Thomas. Each boat comfortably holds four participants and the coach.
Three Options to Choose From
This event is designed as a relaxing non-competitive way to spend the day. Participants can trim the sails and take a turn at the helm, or just sit back and enjoy the view.
The group has a practice session on board with their coach. Once the starting horn sounds, the fleet heads out and around the islands. If conditions permit, instructors will coach the crew to set a spinnaker on the way.
For a more intensive racing experience, we offer a format with several short races. The fleet races upwind, rounds the mark and heads to finish. The winner is the team with the lowest combined race scores.
