What we're about
From Santa Barbara to San Diego, this is a group dedicated to the art of sailing. We will have gatherings both on and off the water, races, cruises and dinners. Members are encouraged to suggest events and venues and arrange fun low cost sailing related activities that members can join. Members will join forces to plan sailing events, or just get together and swap stories of past adventures. Whatever your thing, we'll try to have it.
Crew-mates: Please be courteous and respectful of your skippers by showing up ON TIME for an event. There is typically a waitlist for crewmates, so please RSVP quickly. You will be removed from the group after 2-NoShows, if you are unable to show up for a sail, please update/cancel your RSVP the night before so that the next person on the waiting list can be notified. Every skipper has different rules aboard his/her boat, so please read the event details and conduct yourself accordingly. Please also respect any specifics about the posted event - some adventures may be open to inexperienced sailors while some may be reserved for more seasoned pros.
Skippers: It's free to post meetup events. Just let me (the organizer) know you are interested in posting a sail aboard your vessel and I'll make you an event organizer. Please abstain from ‘TBD’ events, keep it specific with dates/times for a planned sail. While it's okay to split the expenses related to making a sail available to members, please don't use this site to support your own chartering business as that is not the intent.
I hope that this group can be a fun approach to boating and socializing with others of the same interest in sailing!
