What we're about

Membership is free. You do not have to be near this meetup to be part of the sailing vacations we offer throughout the year. However you should be a member to be the first to hear about the upcoming trips!

A group of men and women who enjoy sailing and motor boating in the United States and worldwide from novices to seasoned captains. We are kindred spirits that enjoy our time on the water and seek same like minded people to come together for a common goal of friendship and boating. Our Meet-Ups will be all over the metropolitan area and in other countries including Cuba, Abaco Islands, Grenadines, British and Spanish Virgin Islands, Croatia, you get the idea! Locations and dates will be listed here. Near or far, please join our group, to stay up to date on offerings. Sailing charter opportunities will be posted here.

In the summers Capt. Joy offers huge discounts to Meetup members, aboard her vessel Pure Joy (located in Connecticut) usually on Monday or Tuesday after work sessions. Brush up on your sailing skills, meet new friends, play with #scuppertheboatdog !

St Vincent in the Grenadines is an easy flight from NYC (nonstop). We will explore these lovely islands for a week. For the week we will call a 46' Lagoon catamaran home. All the bells and whistles on this luxury yacht. Cooking is shared between the crew. No sailing experience necessary. Here is a sample itinerary of some of the stops we will make. We will be doing a one way sail from St Vincent to Grenada. Don't want to snorkel? A good book on the bow or lounging area aft is a wonderful way to pass the time. We will explore on land every day.

Greece - Ionian Islands 1st week FULL

Marina

2nd week is open for registration! Ionian islands are the perfect cruising ground! Green wooded islands rise out of sparkling blue sea, and the weather is invariably good throughout the summer months. The afternoon breeze makes it an ideal area for sailing and there are many places of historic interest to visit. Here, too, are quiet sandy beaches in picturesque coves where you can anchor for a stroll in the cool shade of an olive grove, or enjoy an afternoon of water sports such as swimming, snorkeling or windsurfing. In the evenings you can tie up on the quay at one of a number of holiday resorts in the area such as Nidri or Parga and join in the nightlife there, or if you prefer you can visit a small village and sample traditional Greek hospitality at a local tavern. Summer nights in Greece are quite magical and what better way to enjoy them than a glass of your favorite beverage and a quiet beach to look at the stars. Sample Itinerary (subject to change due to weather, etc) Lefkas Town (Lefkas Island) Lefkada is a very pleasant, friendly, typical Greek town. It is an ideal place to start a sailing holiday due to its proximity to the airport, the number of markets to provision your yacht and a selection of good bars and restaurants. Day 1 - Nikiana (Lefkas Island) Nikiana offers a charming over night stop. It's a small fishing harbour with a few tavernas nearby. Day 2 - Sivota (Lefkas Island) Sivota is a gem. Located on the South East of Lefkas Island (and not to be confused with Sivota Mourtos in the north Ionian), this picturesque harbour has a range of tavernas and bars circling a long concrete quay. Day 3 - Ayia Euphemia (Kefalonia Island) Ayia Euphemia (Saint well-spoken of) lies on the East coast of the island of Kefalonia, 10 miles South of the harbour of Fiskardo. Considerable investment has been made refurbishing the quay here, including installing water and electricity points all the way along. Ashore there is an excellent bakery, several provisions stores and restaurants. Day 4 - Sami (Kefalonia Island) The port of Sami lies on the East coast of the island of Kefalonia in Greece, 13 miles SSE of Fiskardo and just over four miles SE of Ayia Eufimia. From here it is possible to visit the Cave of Melissani, an underground lake fed by a subterranean stream which flows all the way across the island from Argostoli. Day 5 - Kastos (Kastos Island) The small Greek island of Kastós lies 10 miles SE of the island of Lefkas. There is just one settlement, on the SE side of the island, which has a small harbour offering good shelter from most directions. The primary attraction of Kastos is the beaches down its eastern side, which are perfect for anchoring, swimming and lunching. There is little else to do in Kastos except chill out under the Greek sun with a drink in hand. Day 6 - Spartachori (Meganissi Island) Spartachori is a lovely village located on a cliff above Port Spilia on Meganisi Island. It’s well worth the hike up to the village, which retains its old world charm. Day 7 - Lefkas Town (Lefkas Island) Just as it was a great place to start, Lefkas Town is also a great place to finish. There are plenty of bars and restaurants we recommend you check out Price per person (double occupancy) $1640 Price includes: 6 night accommodations on board in a double occupancy cabin Breakfast and most lunches and 2 or 3 dinners aboard. Safety, Navigational Aids Fuel and water Galley Equipment Bed Linens and towels Basic Paper Products and Essentials Dinghy and outboard End Cleaning Dock and Port Fees and boat Taxes Vessel insurance Damage Waiver Insurance Prices DO NOT INCLUDE: Airfare Land accommodations Personal Travel Insurance Transportation from airport Local transportation Air conditioning on boat (extra fee collected at boarding if crew wants it) Meals in restaurants Specialty foods and alcohol Land excursions Notes: Must sign a charterer agreement
