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.

October 2018 Newsletter - While we didn’t have a September meeting due to Labor Day, there was still a lot going on. A couple of our boats (Wild Rice & Layla) journeyed to Ft Pierce over Labor Day weekend to join with the Ft Pierce Yacht Club for an ocean race and post race pot luck at their clubhouse. Unfortunately some nasty squalls forced abandonment of the race just prior to the start. The pot luck was nonetheless enjoyed by many SLSC and FPYC members. The club also descended on Peck’s Lake on Sept 15th to participate in the National Beach Cleanup Day. With the Goombay Bash river race on Sept 8th it all added up to a pretty busy month.
October kicks off with our monthly meeting on the 1st where we’ll hear all about Diana Dean’s adventures chartering a boat in Belize. Past Commodore Tom Mestrits will be announcing the slate of SLSC officers for 2019. October is also the time when SLSC puts on its annual October Fest social. This year it will be at the Bayview condo clubhouse on Hutcheson Island on October 20th. Details to follow, but expect some tasty German fare. And as always there’s the Saturday beer can races in the North Fork as well as the monthly trophy race on October 13th.
On another note, we’re still seeking a Fleet Captain and Rear Commodore for next year. If you’re interested in helping the club by serving in either of these roles, contact nominating committee chair Tom Mestrits or myself. We’d love to hear from you.
Meanwhile, let’s have fun on the water.
