Welcome to the St Lucie Sailing Club

Ours is a sailing club of sailing and boating enthusiasts. We do not own a clubhouse nor a marina, so our costs are quite reasonable. The boats in the club range from small day sailors and racers to 50 foot cruisers and multihulls. Yet it does not matter if you own a boat or not. Many of our members do not own boats and routinely serve as crew members on other people’s boats.

We meet once a month – normally the first Monday of the month at the Palm City Recreation Center If that happens to be a holiday, the meeting is cancelled and we normally have a social event early that month.  We also have formal races and cruises about eight times a year as well as beer can races 3 Saturdays each month.

Commodore’s Comments June 2021

 

      May has been another very successful month.  Everything continues to get brighter each month.  We had another award ceremony at Sailor’s Return, thanks to Mike Brescher.  It was a large turnout! 

     We have started having the raft-ups after the races and had five boats at the last raft-up.  Everyone is invited to the raft ups, even if you did not race, and we welcome power boats also.  We all had a great time, and looking forward to the next time. 

     Linda Magda and Tom Mestrits are investigating a location to have an outdoor meeting/social, hopefully on June 27th.  Be on the lookout for news of our June general meeting, Kevin Kirwin and Joe Sawyer are trying to find a location in have an in-person meeting.  If that does not work out, we will have a Zoom meeting on June 7th.  

     Mark your calendars, Asta Poirier is working on the Commodore’s Ball for January 29, 2022.  It will be a grand affair!  Please make a special effort to attend.

      Be safe, healthy, and always remember to have fun.

     Let’s see just how many boats we can get out for the Saturday races! Here is a great video by our Vice Commodore James Arthur.

     We mailed the SLSC 2021 Membership Directory out a few weeks ago.  I know that I missed some of our members, I will have directories with me at all socials and raft ups, so you can pick it up then.  If you would like, you can call me to make arrangements to pick up your roster (757-472-5969).

     Be safe, healthy, and always remember to have fun.
