St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Try something new in the New Year! We invite you to
On Sunday, January 7th from 1 to 4 p.m., the St. Thomas Yacht Club’s
Sailing Center will offer FREE half-hour sailboat rides with refreshments afterward. Ride
the rail and enjoy the wind in your hair and sea spray on your face. Or take the tiller and
drive a four- to five-person 24-foot sailboat called an IC24 or a 13-foot two-person Hobie
Wave catamaran. Each boat is captained by an experienced skipper who is ready to
share their passion for the sport and pointers in a firsthand, fun-filled way. There will
also be discounts and information on how to learn more via the Center’s many Sailing
Courses and its Boat Access program. Bring your friends, bring your family!

“Now in our 8th season, the St. Thomas Sailing Center is providing the perfect opportunity for beginners to seasoned veterans to get out and enjoy the beauty of our treasured waters. Our fleet of 12 IC-24 sailboats and 12 Hobie catamarans provides the vehicle for those to learn how to sail and gives our students and members the ability to see new places from an entirely
different perspective. We provide professional instruction and certifications for those
who want to learn to sail or for those more advanced and who want to increase their
existing knowledge of sailing. Come join the fun this upcoming, Sunday afternoon from
1-4 pm,” invited Bobby Brookes, director of the St. Thomas Sailing Center.
No reservations are necessary. Sign in when you arrive, and Center staff will call your
party when your boat is ready to board. In addition to refreshments, The Galley Grille
will be open for lunch.

See you on the water!
