Cruzan Open, One-Design Regatta -- Qualifier for the Opti Worlds

Cruzan Open One-Design RegattaThe St. Croix Yacht Club at Teague Bay invites sailors of all ages to race in classes of like design: optimists, lasers, 420s, sunfish. Top sailors from across the VI compete.

The Cruzan Open Regatta will be held April 16th and 17th with sailors from St. Croix, the British Virgins, St. Thomas, St. John, and Puerto Rico competing in one-design boats.

The St. Croix sailors, coached by Tino Santiago, have been gearing up for this event. 17 sailors from St. Croix just competed in the Martin Luther King Day regatta in St. Thomas and placed well. The youth sailing at the St. Croix Yacht Club has grown immensely under Coach Tino. We have a lot of young sailors competing in the Optimist Class. The Optimist will be a very competitive class, since this regatta is a qualifier for the Opti Worlds, which is being held in Portugal this year.

Other classes to be sailed – Sunfish, 420’s and Lasers. Courses to be sailed will be either windward- leeward or triangles. Two full days of racing in Teague Bay followed by an awards ceremony in the late afternoon. See the Events Calendar for more races scheduled for May.

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 Reef National Monument. Covering nearly 6 acres, the manicured grounds of the club are host to a fleet of both sailing and motorized vessels and a membership capacity of 500.
