The St. John Yacht Club was founded in 1972 by a group of adventurous St. Johnians who loved sailing.  Over the past 36 years, the St. John Yacht Club has grown to about 80 family memberships, including full- and part-time residents.  We are members of the United States Sailing Association, with full reciprocal privileges with yacht clubs all over the world.

Our Club Insignia – The Maltese Cross 

 
StJohnYachtClub_burgee.png
 

The Maltese Cross is identified as the symbol of an order of Crustian warriors known as the Knights Hospitaller, or Knights of Malta. It was originally the symbol of Amalfi, a small Italian republic of the 11th century. The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four “V”-shaped arms joined together at their bases, so that each arm has two points. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade. The eight points are said to symbolize the chivalric virtues:

  • Loyalty

  • Piety

  • Frankness

  • Bravery

  • Glory and honor

  • Contempt of death

  • Helpfulness towards the poor and the sick

  • Respect for the church
