Saint Croix Sailing School

Saint Croix Sailing School

Celebrating 10 years of growing community sailing in our Saint Croix River Valley

Our Mission

The Saint Croix Sailing School is a registered non-profit community sailing center open to all. We promote the growth of junior and adult sailing in the Saint Croix Valley and its nearby communities. Our focus is on children and teens from ages 7 through high school as well as adults of all ages. We are dedicated to teaching time-honored and life-long sailing and racing skills on the water, with safety, fun and adventure for all. Those skills enable young people to learn teamwork, practice sportsmanship, develop self-reliance and respect nature.
