Join Us at Our Monthly NWSA Meeting

Northwest Sailing Association, a social sailing club with members in Chicago, northern IL and northwest suburbs was formed in 1975 and currently has over 200 members, comprised on individuals and familes of two members. Our sailing season runs May through October with sails from Lake Michigan harbors as well as trailered boat events at Lake Mendota and Lake Geneva in WI. NWSA Meetup is a PR arm of the NWSA sailing club.

We invite all sailing enthusiasts to the monthly meeting, Monday, October 21, 2013, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm,  Arlington Heights Historical Society aft meeting room, 110 W. Fremont in Arlington Heights. Three blocks from Arlington Heights Metra station. Ample free parking.

After a brief business meeting, enjoy refreshments and socializing followed by the annual Photo Contest.  Come see the wide array of member photos taken this season in these categories: Old Salt, Best NWSA Sail Group Shot, Best Under Sail, Best Scenic, Best Sunset, Best Blooper and Most Original Boat Name.  The contest is great fun. Hope that next year you will join us and participate in the season's sails and also join the photo contest.

Meanwhile, this year, continue socializing after the meeting at Eddies Pub nearby. Get to know other Meetup members and parent organization NWSA members.

NWSA is comprised of sailors with boats and those without boats who want to crew. More info at

This is our last Meetup in 2013. Enjoy the November and December holidays. Plan to join us in 2014 in January at both our monthly meeting and at Strictly Sail held at Navy Pier.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
