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 food and beverages hosted by our member boats.
Hello fellow sailors,
Lisa “Wolff” Terwey is hosting a ski day at Afton Alps on Saturday January 29th. Lisa and Adam will supply a cooler of beer to share, but it’s OK to bring your own too!
Luke Mathias will bring a portable propane grill to cook your favorite meats on. It will be a free for all, self-serve, cook as you wish scenario. Please bring something simple to share! Utensils will be limited unless you bring them… Luke Mathias will bring some plastic silverware, paper plates, paper towels and Fireball!
We will be tailgating on the bottom of the hill at lift 7. If you want a front row spot at the bottom, I suggest you get there by 830am as they fill up fast! We will get there at 830am….but we cannot block off or save spots! Lifts open at 930am.
Bring camping chairs!!!!
We will have a group photo taken at our tailgate spot at noon!
Here is a link to lift ticket info if you do not have a season pass.

This will be the first of the traditional Tuesday night winter gatherings for members and friends of the SCSC.
When: February 1st.
Where: Ziggys in Hudson. 1st floor. (website)
Time: 6 pm or when you can get there.
Trivia: One of the owners is an E-Docker in the marina.
Entertainment: Tim Grady will be playing piano and singing at the piano bar.
Lets gather, listen to the very good entertainment, converse to catch up on what all of us have been doing and enjoy getting together after a long cold spell. Social time in the bar area starts at 6, and we can sit down to eat later.
Please let me know if you plan on attending. Ziggys will put tables together so we can sit and have food during the evening. But Ziggys would like to know how many will attend to make things work well for us.

The St. Croix Sailing Club is hosting a Meat Raffle Fundraiser at Big Guys BBQ Roadhouse (1237 Highway 35N, Hudson, WI) on Friday, February 18th from 6:30 pm to 10 pm. To participate in the meat raffle, all you need is a few bucks and a love of meat! Winners receive select cuts of meat from a local butcher.
Bring your family and friends, along with some cash and an appetite! Big Guys serves the most incredible smoked BBQ this side of the St. Croix River (they also have a fish fry on Friday). Go to bigguysbbqroadhouse.com to check out their full menu. We will have a large club table, but additional reservations can be made by contacting them directly.
Proceeds raised from the meat raffle will go towards club events and expenditures for the upcoming sailing season. So please tell your friends to join us! Events like this will help keep the club alive for future generations!
We need 6-12 volunteers from the club to sell raffle tickets throughout the evening.
Volunteers need to be there by 6:15 pm (or can come later to relieve others). Contact the Secretary on our Contact Us page to let us know if you can volunteer. Thanks for your help!
When the moon hits the sky like a big piece of pie; that is an awesome desert!
Gather up sailors, friends, kids and lets go out sailing on Friday, August 13th. Anytime around six pm or when you can get out there on the water.
Afterwards we will gather at the point to have a bon fire along with a pie and ice cream social.
The club will provide beverages, pie and ice cream.
Please rsvp to Dennis Wenker by clicking here.
As an added benefit the skipper of each boat that rsvps can request their favorite pie (please include on the RSVP form).
11th ANNUAL BAYFIELD CRUISE
AUGUST 19th – 22nd, 2021 – MARK YOUR CALENDARS
OK, a bit too early to book your boat, but not too early to make plans to attend, take the time off of work, etc.
As usual, we will have a kick off dinner on Thursday, the 19th and then we shove off on Friday and return Sunday, but for those who can sail into Monday it’ll be a bonus. Another bonus is it will be a full moon weekend.
Not much is open in Bayfield as I write this. But, I am sure the charter companies have their web sites up and running so you can view what they have available and maybe even book now. The early bird gets the worm.
It is a winter wonderland in the Islands now. The ice road was open for one day. But then the ice started shifting and so that was the end of the road……at least for now.
I’ll have more info to come when pertinent. If you have any questions, contact Bill Hooper, or use the Contact Us form.
Carry on Mateys.
The racers will be sailing from Hudson to Stillwater beginning at 11am and Cruisers are welcome to join along! A party will be held in Stillwater on the waterfront south of the lift bridge following racing. Food and beverages will be provided for all members.
More details will be provided closer to the event.
It has been an extremely long year with Covid. Lets celebrate the summer solistice with lots of energy! We will cruise the St Croix in the evening of June 19th. Gather at the SCMC docks afterwards. Then we head off to the local establishments in Husdon for food and entertainment. Dancing at Ziggys, playing pool at another local establishment, and so on as the night goes progresses. Bonfire at the point afterwards (like, 2 am)! Head out at 5 am to see the sunrise over the St Croix. The Race Chair did this two years ago and it was a phenomenal night. Perfectly calm waters while watching the sun rise. What could be a more peaceful moment in life?
Special prizes for the boats that make it through the night. The moon will be close to full so sailing into the evening will be phenomenal event. How could you not put out your best effort for this special event? And can you out last the “old one”. No names are needed…
On Saturday we will anchor out in the Hudson Bay in the late morning. Sails Meeting will drop anchor by 11 am and all other boats are invited to tie up. We can work to arrange a star raft if we have enough boats out there. If not, we can do kind of a horse shoe.
The days events will be rafting up, socializing, swimming, having lunch and beverages on the water. Bring life jackets, floaties, sunscreen, and anything else you will need. The club will provide lunch and beverages on the water.
We all sail frequently so this will be a day to enjoy time together on the water.
You may anchor out overnight if you wish but remember you must have working lights on your boat. This applies to all boats that stay overnight. Otherwise you are easy pickins for the water patrol.
Also you will need at least two fenders per boat to tie up. Do not depend on someone else to have spares to borrow. No one wants scratches on the hull that could be avoided.
Please RSVP to assist with planning, especially for beverages and food.
Everyone is welcome to attend – be you a member of SCSC or not – let’s fill the bay with sailboats!
Thank you for your RSVP!
Your feedback is greatly appreciated as it helps our organizers plan for the event.
