An introduction from the Founder & President Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou
Dear friends of the Gustavia Yacht Club,
This is a short presentation which outlines the progress we have made in creating this new Yacht Club on the exclusive island of St Barts. Having already signed up more than 75 members in less than two months, we have decided to go ahead and seek a limited number of Corporate Sponsorship partnerships with the right brands for the first year.
We have set the limit to six brands only until the end of 2017 and we are seeking a donation to our Club of €15,000 from each of the brands.
Along with my own initial endowment to the Club of €200,000 and the generous contributions from our Benefactors and Members, your support will give our Club the resources to grow and flourish. In addition to my endowment to the Club, I have granted the Club a three year lease on the current Clubhouse at a nominal rent.
Our ultimate aim is to enable the Club to acquire its own freehold premises in Gustavia within that timeframe.
I look forward to hearing from you,
What the world’s media say about St. Barts
“Famous faces like; Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Lindsay Lohan, Lana Del Rey, Salma Hayek, Channing Tatum, Sean “Diddy” Combs, and Rachel Zoe have all celebrated the New Year from the famed beach. This year celebrities like Paul McCartney, George Lucas, Toby Maguire, Paris Hilton, Ellen DeGeneres, Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles, Marc Jacobs, Robin Thicke, Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber and many more are partying on the island.”
"St. Barts is often compared to the French Riviera. It’s elegant, yet casual. Its visitors are mostly wealthy, but are not flashy.
It is glamorous, yet remarkably low key.”
“St. Barts is also completely free of security fears - the celebs feel so safe that they barely have body guards.
You really do bump into Sting in the supermarket and Paul McCartney on the beach.”
