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.

From the Commodore
In order to insure the safety of our membership during the COVID-19 crisis and to comply with directives from the CDC and others regarding limiting gatherings to less than 10 people, we have decided to cancel our April 6th monthly meeting. For the same reasons, our Sailing & Margaritas event scheduled for April 9th has also been cancelled.
On the bright side, our racing program will continue uninterrupted. Watch your email for notices from Race Captain Mike Brescher regarding upcoming races. Sailing is an excellent antidote for cabin fever. We are lucky that we can continue to enjoy our sport during this public health emergency.
See you on the water.

Febuary Commodore Comments - We are off to a great start for the year 2020. Thanks to Asta Poirier and her helpers, the Commodore’s Ball was a huge success. The food and band were outstanding. It was a pleasure to see everyone dressed up. It was a very goodlooking group. A special thanks goes out to Jay and Annie Seeley for taking lots of very nice pictures. I would also like to thank our new 2020 Bridge for volunteering. We have a few new people on the Bridge this year and many good new ideas.
We are looking forward to a busy year. Mike Brescher has put together an ambitious racing schedule. The Blessing of the Fleet is on February 8, with a raft-up at Kitching Cove after the blessing. The Sweetheart Regatta is on February 15th, the captains get to turn over the helms to the ladies. Linda Magda, Tom Mestrits, and Fred Faulkner are working on the cruise to the Locks, and picnic/chili cook off on February 22nd. I encourage everyone to mark up their calendars with our outings and come out, enjoy the fun.
I look forward to seeing everyone at our February 3rd meeting at our normal place. Please note: The March and April meetings will be at a different location from the Palm City Recreation Center (location TBA).
