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.

The first Tuesday of each month, we gather at a local establishment to catch up on things! There’s nothing formal planned – these are opportunities to hang out with club members for a while. If you’re new to the club or thinking of getting involved, this is a great way to get familiar and talk with skippers and crew about getting involved out on the water!
12th ANNUAL BAYFIELD CRUISE
AUGUST 11th – 15th, 2022 – MARK YOUR CALENDARS
Officially it is spring and unless Mother Nature has anymore surprises up her sleeve, boats on the St. Croix will be launching very soon. It’s quite a different story in Bayfield WI. The warm weather we have enjoyed here isn’t being shared on the South Shore of Lake Superior and they still are getting snow forecasted. As a matter of fact, Bayfield has tons of snow and thick ice, but that will all be gone by August come Bayfield Cruise time. The ice road to Madeline is now closed and that is a step in the right direction.
But, while the cruise is a long ways off, you need to mark your calendar and start planning for the cruise in the Apostles. The charter companies’ web sites have their charter boat selections on line and you can start getting your group together and book the boat of your choice before someone else does. More details to follow as details accumulate.
