The Saint Barth Yacht Club is located at the entrance to the Bay of Gustavia. Five minutes from downtown in a beautiful protected water plan, close to the natural reserves and open to the sea, it offers a perfect choice of conditions. It exerts its sailing school activities since its creation in 1985.
The Saint Barth Yacht Club benefits from a wonderful playground. Its borders are the Gustavia harbor, the surrounding islets of "Petits Saints", "Gros Ilets" and "Pain de Sucre", and the beaches of Public and Corrossol. Navigating transparent waters above coral or sandy bottoms, passing from surprises to amazement in the company of turtles, gannets and frigate birds. A unique cocktail resulting from the environmental policies of the Natural Reserve over many years. Our proximity to the city and our openness to the open sea allow us to offer various playgrounds: off with the swell, near the coast with a teasing and technical wind, in a kayak or paddle in search of wrecks, or even by Rs-Venture to go with family and friends to approach the Colombier Bay; we will be able to provide what you desire.
