Our group is open to experienced sailors wanting to join and host sailing events. You do not need to own a boat to participate, nor are you required to use your boat for events. We are simply easy going sailors who love to share our passion of the sport with good people. Mainly, we get out sailing on various sized vessels as much as we can.
Sailing is not for the light hearted. It can be sweaty, boring, freezing and make you seasick. At the same time it can be exciting, beautiful and one of life's greatest adventures if you let it. Come with an open mind, extra time and a dream and we'll help you with the rest.
**THIS GROUP HAS A STRICT POLICY REGARDING -NO SHOWS- due to the limited opportunities available to our large group of sailors. No Shows can be used as grounds to remove the member from the group. It's important all members show consideration to not hold a spot for an event unless they are certain they are able to attend. Holding a spot and doing a last minute drop or No Show prevents others from being able to join these events.** If you join a Waitlist, you should check back to see if you were put on the Yes list and going. If you are on a Waitlist and make others plans, please be sure to change your RSVP to a No.
