What we're about

The Meetup Singles on Sailboats Group is a vehicle to introduce prospective members to our club.

The club is an organization of singles in the Chesapeake Bay area (over 700 members) who enjoy sailing, or want to get involved in the sport. Members include skippers (boat owners - about 125) and crew looking for OPB's (other peoples boats) to sail on.

Experienced and novice sailors are welcome, and the club offers extensive learning experiences. Activities include a busy schedule of day sails, weekend cruises, and extended 10-day cruises during the sailing season (April thru November), and many social get-togethers during the off-season.

We also organize one or two bareboat charter events every year, to destinations literally around the world. Recent destinations have included several to the Carribbean, Australia, Lake Huron, Croatia For more info, visit our website at www.SinglesonSailboats.org (http://www.singlesonsailboats.org/).

Through the Meetup website we offer year-round monthly happy hours throughout the northern Chesapeake Bay area. These are located from southeastern Pa to northern VA, and numerous points in between. They are attended by both Meetup participants and active club members. Active members do not RSVP through Meetup, so you will find many more attendees at these events than this site might indicate.

During the off-season (November through March) we also offer monthly Sunday Brunches in Annapolis. These typically attract over 100 attendees, and always include a speaker on a subject of interest. Speakers have included noted authors, Bay Pilots, outdoors & nature photographers, celebrated sailors, among others.

Members and non-members are welcome at the happy hours and brunches, all posted on this site. We invite you to participate in our Meetups, meet club members, talk sailing, and consider joing the club.
