The U.S. Island Territory of Guam
The Island of Guam was ceded by Spain to the United States, along with the Philippines and Puerto Rico, by the Treaty of Paris which ended the Spanish-American war in 1898. Except for a brief period during World War II (1941 – 1944), when Guam was occupied by Japan, Guam has remained a territory of the United States. The U.S. Congress passed the Guam Organic Act of 1950 establishing Guam’s current political status as an Unincorporated Territory of the United States. Guam has a Governor and a Senate, but remains a U.S. Territory affording all of the protections of U.S. Law. Located approximately 3,300 miles West of Hawaii and 1,550 miles East of the Philippines, Guam is the Westernmost patch of United States soil in the Western Pacific. With its natural beauty and friendly people make Guam an attractive vacation destination. Read more about the Island of Guam.
The Cruising Grounds
Joss sails from Agat Marina in central Guam on the Philippine Sea, South to Cocos Island and North to Double Reef, within the lee of the island, protected from high winds and rough seas. Curious dolphins routinely accompany Joss as she sails the coast. Next on the agenda is a stop at one of the many secluded coves or pristine reefs that dot the coastline for swimming, snorkeling, cocktails or a bar-b-que on-board or ashore.
Paid charters may be in the future. For now, we are always looking for adventurous girls to crew. Is that you? Do you love the sun and sea? Want to avoid the normal tourist traps and enjoy a tropical cruise on a private sailing yacht with a bunch old lechers? Just bring your tanning oil.

Guam has American style grocery and hardware stores, restaurants, legal services and two major U.S. military bases. The island is small and only has to marine supply stores, but harder to find items can be shipped in and there are a few very good machine shops Visiting sailors would be advised to check with the Marianas Yacht Club for more information and support upon arrival.
