The St. Croix Sailing club is not all about Racing: we are about Sailing. For those who would rather go out for a casual cruise, the club holds five (or more) cruise events and a Bayfield cruise on Lake Superior. For those who like cruising but also enjoy a bit of fun, the Friday Beercan races might interest you. Beercan races are events which are less intensive then our regular races and are followed by a grilling event hosted by our member boats.
The 2017 Shrimp Boil will follow the Carlson Classic races on July 22nd.
Carlson Classic Races
Two Yacht of the Year races will begin at 11:00. They will use the reverse-start sequence, with high-phrf boats starting first.
This year’s Shrimp Boil will be hosted by Karen Schneider and Wayne Hector at 5110 Kirkwood Ave N, Lake Elmo, MN on July 22 following the Carlson Classic, roughly 5 p.m. Please bring a dish to pass, swim suit and pool toy. Club provides all you can eat shrimp, corn, potatoes and beverages.
Cost for members is $20 for ages 16 and older, $10 for ages 8 to 15, children 7 and under are free. Non-members add an additional $5.
