We are about bringing Skippers and Crew together to enjoy sailing the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and it's Rivers. Sailing is the shared interest that brings our members together. This Meetup is for people who like to sail or want to learn to sail. Most of our Skipper's boats are based near Deltaville, VA and sail in the Chesapeake Bay and the Rappahannock River. The Richmond Deltaville Sailing Meet up does not own any boats, but rather relies on the generosity of the boat owning Skippers to share their boats and take members sailing. This is a non-dues Membership. In all posted Sailing Meet Ups the Skippers have the ultimate decision of who they invite/approve to sail on their boats, since they are responsible for the safety of crew and boat. Check with the Skippers about rules on His/Her boat. Each Skipper has their own preference for choosing crew. Some choose a balanced crew; some who haven't sailed in a while, some with sailing experience, some to teach members to sail ( if they are calling for heavy wind, they'll want an experienced crew). It is so important for Skippers and crew to get to know each other, so please come to our social events. Please wear non-marking shoes when you go sailing, and be physically able to board and move about these boats. Membership approval is at the discretion of the leadership team.
