What we're about

SAILING OPPORTUNITIES with SEAS Morris Chapter
Society for the Education of American Sailors
SEAS Morris Chapter is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to sailing and the teaching of sailing skills.
*Have you ever wanted to learn to sail?
*Do you love sailing but don't have a boat?
*Would you like to be a part of an organization dedicated to sailing, and having fun?
SEAS is more than just sailing, it's a club. Throughout the year we offer a variety of parties, sailing events, and trips in addition to regular monthly meetings. It's a great way to meet people, looking for sailing opportunities, or who have a boat and are looking for a crew.
Join us at our monthly general meetings - open to the public: 1st Wednesday of each month. 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Our meetings were held at Charlie Brown's restaurant in Denville, but do to Covid, they shut down. Bummer- it was a great place to have our meetings. Due to Covid our last couple of meetings were held at a yacht club at Lake Hopatcong, and via Zoom for those who prefer to stay home during the pandemic. Location sent to paid SEAS members.

First mates must have solid knowledge of dropping & hoisting anchors, stearn-to-moorings, cleat knots, etc. The following is the proposed itinerary, which will be used as a general guide: Day 1: Explore the medieval walled city at Trogir which features architecture from the 13th century and don’t miss the 3rd century bas-relief of Kairos within the Benedictine Monastery of St Nicholas. Head to the port village of Maslinica on the Island Šolta, which overlooks an archipelago of seven islets. The historic centre of Trogir has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Day 2: Sail to the old fishing port of Komiža on the Island Vis. Discover the pebble beaches, relax and perhaps visit the blue caves on Bisevo Island. Get to know the local delicacies in the evening and eat at local restaurants. Day 3: Walk around Vis town and its 16th century villas. The island has a lush landscape that is brimming with vineyards. If you want to explore underwater, Vis is a popular scuba diving spot with plentiful marine life. Day 4: Make for Hvar, an island full of beautiful lavender and herbs, as well as a reputation for being rather upmarket. Walk around Hvar Town’s harbor, the piazza, the huge fortress that dominates the skyline and St Stephen’s Cathedral to get a great view from the bell tower. Day 5: Sail around to the north of Hvar to Vrboska, a 15th century village near UNESCO-protected Stari Grad Plain. Marvel at the patchwork of paths and walls that cross the agricultural flats. Day 6: Set sail for the island of Brac and Milna on its west coast. You’ll find a wonderful harbor, known as the bay of a thousand ships, where you can enjoy fantastic local food and wine. Day 7: Head back to Trogir to disembark. This event is advertised at other locations, therefore the RSVPs listed for this group most likely will be less than the actual number of attendees.

Sail Tahiti

Dream Yacht Charter

Trip is full, we have 12 people going. Thank you for your interest. Trips are first offered to paid-up SEAS members. They fill up very fast. Price for trip is $1,100. PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE: Airfare to/from Tahiti Transfers where needed Travel insurance (recommended) Contact organizer for more information. Papeete on Tahiti is the capital. Within the Society group are Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine, the jewels of the exotic cruising grounds of a Tahiti sailing vacation. Because the islands are downwind from Tahiti they’re known as the Leewards. The mountainous heights rise from the sea atop what remains of ancient volcanoes so old the craters have all but eroded into oblivion. Encircling barrier reefs provide a habitat for sea turtles, dolphins, porpoises, colorful hard and soft coral, and more than 500 species of fish, making the Tahitian Leewards one of the world’s top snorkeling and scuba diving venues. The following Itinerary is proposed by Dream Yacht Charter. We will use it as a general guide. Day 1: Get to know, Raiatea, the heart of Polynesian culture. Then focus on resting by eating dinner on board as your Tahitian adventure is just beginning! Day 2: Head to the Anapa Pearl Farm with its pearl divers, rare aquatic reserve and coral garden. Make a tour reservation, then take a mooring at the farm and learn all about pearls. Afterwards, explore the lagoon or hike through the rainforest to spot Tiare Apetahi, a very rare flower. Day 3: Anchor at Motu Toopua on Bora Bora and enjoy swimming and snorkeling. Take a mooring at the Bloody Mary’s restaurant and marvel at their huge list of famous guests. Day 4: Sail to the east side of the lagoon, where you can swim with turtles, rays, sharks and fish. In the afternoon, sail the southern shore of the island and explore the magnificent coral reef. Day 5: Sail to the east side of Taha’a and explore the amazing coral reef or Passe Toahotu. Stay onboard for dinner and get a decent night’s sleep. Day 6: Sail to Huahine and visit Fare, where you will find a warm local welcome in this Polynesian village. Browse the boutiques and get a bite to eat in the small restaurants. Day 7: Cruise to Avea Bay, then sail to Huahine Lagoon, with deep clear waters and gleaming white sand. The anchorage in this bay is very well-protected and should provide a restful night. Day 8: Sail downwind to Raiatea, dine ashore and sail back to base.
