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.

July 2018 Newsletter - We had a wide variety of happenings this June. Our meeting featured video and a group discussion on hurricane preparedness for your boat. A summary of member’s suggestions appears elsewhere in this Log. For the first time in a long time, we combined with the Ft Pierce Yacht Club for a weekend of ocean racing and socializing. Details later in the Log but I’ll just say here that a good time was had by all and we’re encouraged to do more of this in the future, both in Ft Pierce and locally. Finally, the Summer Sailstice Regatta was held under hot drifting conditions in the North Fork resulting in a drastically shortened race course and some very sweaty sailors.
Speaking of sweltering conditions, our program for the July meeting will feature Race Captain Mike Brescher giving tips for staying cool in the hot weather. This is particularly important this time of year when dehydration and heat exhaustion become real possibilities. We’ll follow Mike’s talk with a video about artic exploration in a wooden turn of the century schooner that becomes shipwrecked (temporarily) and filled with icy water. That should cool us all off. See how the crew extricates themselves.
I hear there are some boats going out to watch 4th of July fireworks. Find out who at the meeting and you might decide to join them. July is also the month for the Sailing & Fishing Ocean Regatta. Mike will have details of this most unusual event.
Meanwhile, let’s have fun on the water.
