Business name : St. Croix Yacht Club

Way back in the 1930s, competitive sailing on St. Croix started to develop when a friend of Anton Teytaud (a founder of the St. Croix Yacht Club) built a Snipe from plans published in Rudder Magazine. Anton then purchased another Snipe in Puerto Rico so that there could be some spirited racing between the two every Sunday. A class of similar boats grew to four and a competition with St. Thomas Snipe sailors was undertaken. Unfortunately the St. Croix sailors were thoroughly beaten both at home and over at St. Thomas. Not to be daunted, Teytaud acquired a larger craft and organized races with the Gallows Bay fishermen in Christiansted harbor and in Frederiksted with fishermen of the West End.

In 1940, Teytaud purchased a Comet and joined the Club Nautico of San Juan to be able to race there. He earned a fifth place in the Midwinter Comet Regatta, which was won by the national champion of the class. (By 1965, representing the St. Croix Yacht Club, Teytaud won first place in San Juan for this regatta, beating the same national champion).
