Virgin Islands Sailing Clubs
The St. Thomas Yacht Club located in the U.S. Virgin Islands has grown to over 400 members and the IC -24 class has also thrived to over 13 boats with more on the way. An additional 25 IC-24 sailboats have also been built on the neighboring islands of Puerto Rico and Tortola that created a fantastic one design racing fleet in Club waters.
The first few years of the new millennium also brought a strong youth sailing program to the club with the advent of lasers, optimists and 420’s to our fleet. Our youth sailors distinguished themselves as being some of the best in the entire US and in International Regattas led by Cy Thompson, Thomas Barrows and Taylor Canfield they won two North American championships and two US National High School Championships.
