Set Sail with your Community Sailing Center this Summer!

***Important Updates for 2024***

Unfortunately, youth sailing lessons will not be offered in 2024. We hope to revive the program next year.

Youth Sailors are welcome to participate in classes at White Bear Sailing School: Mention that you are from SCSS. If your prefered date is sold out, reach out to them to see if accomodations for your SCSS students can be made.

We will be offering adult ASA-101 courses and should have them available for registration in late April.

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.
