What we’re about

Salty Dog Sailing Club of Denver ( is a Colorado not for profit group of adults interested in sailing and socializing with others who share their love of sailing. Although we're relatively new on MeetUp, this Denver Sailing Club has been around for decades and boasts a membership of several dozen (most of whom are not on MeetUp). 

The mission of the Salty Dog Sailing Club (SDSC) is to unite boat owners and crew for fun sailing and social events.  As club members share sailing knowledge and experience in helpful and respectful ways, all event participants can enhance sailing skills in a fun and supportive environment. 

Boat owners and non-boat owners, singles and couples are welcome. You don't need to be an experienced sailor, but we don't offer sailing instruction. During the sail season, the Club hosts a number of day sails and weekend sails at area lakes (mostly Chatfield or Cherry Creek). Three-day weekend sails may take us to Granby, Dillon, and Pueblo, as well as McConaughy in Nebraska and Glendo in Wyoming.

Salty Dog members and friends also organize blue water charter sails in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and other off-shore destinations. When we're not sailing, we host a variety of fun events on shore throughout the year-dining, skiing, theater, cultural excursions, zip lining, hiking, skiing, miniature golf, and dinner, etc.
