Marc was the first Navy Seal to die in Iraq.  Google his name, you will be impressed.  We have named our facility after him with the approval of his mother.

The paypal link of this club goes to Forsyth Area Sports Teams, Inc. and all deductions are approved by the IRS as a donation to a 501 (c)(3).

The lake is now high enough to use our dock for “small boat” sailing at anytime by making a reservation. This is open to any member who passes a 1 hour proficiency test or who can show suitable qualifications. Use of the sailboat is free.

Our aquatic club supports employment for challenged adults through the nonprofit Forsyth Area Sports Teams, Inc. (FAST)

If you are going to donate to the nonprofit anyway, we have made it fun for you to watch your donation disappear. We have added a new fundraiser this year “Pirate Poker”, the only poker game we play is “Plunder”. There is absolutely no chance of you winning and you are better off just throwing the money to us from a distance. You do not get to hear the rules until after you break them and they change constantly. There is some rum involved so you must be over 21 to lose money. The minimum you are allowed to lose is $10. After people depart from the every sail, the others can stay at the clubhouse to play pirate poker until their money runs out or they walk the plank into the pool.

As wonderful as our sailing courses are, we must acknowledge that the best place to take sailing is the Lanier Sailing Academy. We are not affiliated we them, we simply know they are the very best, and they win awards. Single boat operations simply do not compare to learning on their large lake fleet and with their other sailboats in many places around the world. Do you have a question about a sailing school, ask us?
