Sailing Singles is dedicated to
bringing single people together for the enjoyment of
sailing, cruising, social and educational experiences.
Meetings are held on the second
Friday of each month (except for December). A short business
agenda is followed by an entertaining and informative
program on some topic related to boating.
Afterwards, our DJ provides music
for dancing. Others may choose to visit around the (cash)
bar, where boating contacts may be made.
We are a non-profit organization
founded in 1980. Sailing Singles membership numbers in the
hundreds, composed of single men and women who join because
of a mutual interest in Sailing and boating. You must be
single to join. In addition, some married couples who met at
the club remain as associate members. Annual dues are
A membership roster is mailed each
year. This is a valuable source of skippers and crew. A
monthly newsletter with current and future events is
available to members and guests. The Internet Web Page
http://www.sailingsinglesclub.com also keeps members up to
date on current activities.
Members pay a nominal fee for
meetings and activities. Guests are welcome, but pay a
slightly higher fee.
Sailing Singles is governed by
Officers and a Board of Directors, elected annually. Various
committees assist with membership activities.
While Sailing Singles, as a club,
owns no boats, many members (known as skippers) own
sailboats and power boats of all classes and sizes.
These skippers welcome club
members as crew on their vessels and appreciate help in
preparing their boats for launch and winter storage. Both
experienced and inexperienced sailors are welcomed.
The membership roster lists boat
owners who may be contacted when you wish to join them on
the water. A skipper list is published in a spring issue of
The Anchor Line newsletter.
Weekend rendezvous are held each
season, beginning with a Memorial Day weekend get-together
at a nearby American or Canadian port, and continuing every
3 or 4 weeks through late September. The majority of the
rendezvous are Saturday-Sunday events located close enough
so that members who prefer to drive can join in the dinner
Learn to Sail:
Each spring, beginning in March,
Sailing Singles offers instruction on the basics of boating
and sailing in a classroom setting. Details are posted on
our website usually in January.
The Commodore's Ball and Christmas
Party are events with dinner and live bands. These parties
are usually held at yacht or country clubs.
Sailing Singles events are as
varied as the people who comprise the membership. We hold
Happy Hours at various bars and restaurants around town. An
annual dinner honors the skippers who, together with their
boats, make this club possible. Many members attend the
annual Blessing of the Fleet at Mariner's Church.

camaraderie of boating appeal to you, if you have a boat to
share or just enjoy the water, come to one of our meetings,
