Are there any adult sports leagues on STX? I'm particularly interested in softball but would play other sports if they were available.

For Mens soccer on STX there are multiple teams. I know of the practice location/times for two of them. PM me if interested.

Does anyone anywhere on STX, you know, sail? Competitively, that is? Don't send me back to the yacht club. Been there, done that. I'm not looking for cocktails on someone's Buck Island trip either. I'm also well aware of the standard winter Caribbean racing circuit. I mean more regular, local events. It seems the only people that race here are the kids. It just blows my mind that in this place where the wind always comes from pretty much the same direction and pretty much the same velocity with pretty much the same temperature there aren't more boats out there on a regular basis. Even small ones -- 470s, Solings, J80s, Lasers ... I get that it's hard to get a large crew together.

Is STT any better? Last I heard, the STT Yacht Club had basically turned into the STT Tennis Club.

Anybody?

Gosh, IT. You want to race yachts, you go to a yacht club. I am not sure how you arrived at the perception that STYC had turned into a tennis club- although they do have a good tennis program. There is the successful IC-24 Friday night racing and match racing programs, the kids Opti program (and an international regatta that they host every year), races serious (the International Regatta in the spring) and fun (the Old Trophies race). This has taken a lot of time and effort by some dedicated yacht club members. If your yacht club on St Croix needs a new program, maybe you should get out there and organize... And BTW, Taylor Canfield just won a big regatta in Chicago and is set to defend his match racing title.

while not quite so 'organized', there is also the SCUFA (STX Ultimate Frisbee Association) crew that plays on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30/5 till dark on the field in front of UVI (across from the RT Park)... bring a light and a dark t shirt -

I've been involved with SCYC for a long time. Racing is dead there. There is no island interest among the members. Chris Schrieber did a lot to try and get the Rhodes 19 program off the ground, but that only really lasted a year or so. I don't even think they race anymore. The "tennis club" comment WRT STYC was not to offend, just a rumor I heard at the last couple of Rolexes (I guess we can't call them that anymore, can we?) that this is where STYC was sticking all it's money. If it's not true, GREAT! I always heard STT had a better local racing scene, but I don't live there, so I didn't know. That's why I posted.

One race a year is not what I'm really looking for. I know who Taylor is and the regattas he races up north. I've raced Lake Michigan for years out of Chicago and Milwaukee. I was looking for something like that, where you've got regular events, not just one big regatta a year or a juniors program.

Thanks for the info.

I don't do match racing, but how does someone from another island get involved in the IC-24 series?

I would seriously fly over for regular races.

The Friday night races are for yacht club club members and guests. They want to encourage others to become part of the fleet. If you are serious, call the yacht club and ask who is in charge of the fleet. Do you have reciprocity? Or are you willing to join? Hey, Iris, maybe you should move over here! 😉

No. No reciprocity anymore. I had two yacht club memberships at one point (incl. STYC), but had to give both up for financial and lack of use reasons. (I was mostly racing in Chicago and didn't need one as I was always a guest of the boat I crewed on.)

Maybe I'll give them a call. IC-24s are a little small for my skill set, but I'm always willing to learn.

Thanks for the tip.
