A toast from
Margo S. Lynch
Commodore

It was 1964
And some boaties from St. Thomas,
they all wanted more.

So a SHACK was constructed,
just made of wood.

And the parties they threw….
were epically good.

The gents started to think,
they need a real bar
to set down their drink.

So a club house was planned,
And built just where we stand.

The fleet started small,
6 boats at the most,
giving everyone sailing a reason to toast.

Yacht club sailors were bursting with skill.
I’ve heard racing with Rudy was always a thrill.

Caribbean regattas to the Olympic Games,
sailing from the V.I. would never be the same.

With legends before them to light and lead the way,
St. Thomas sailors have proven, they’re here to stay.

Grounded by history and sailing success, the crushing winds of hurricanes left us a mess.

No need to worry, while progress is slow, we promise SOON, your boat will have somewhere to go.

With a roof that won’t leak
and a mast that is stepped
STYC will be back at its best.

However,
In these times of recovery, I’m reminded to look back.

What more do we need than boats, great friends and a shack.
