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 monthly meetings. For the same reasons, our Sailing & Margaritas events will also be 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.

From the Acting Commodore
June 2020 - Here we are again... but this time, only in a partial lockdown mode. As I am writing, the weather is helping to keep people indoors as this Memorial Day weekend has been very stormy.
I am sure our intrepid Race Captain,Mike Brescher, has been keeping the racing fleet active. Hope you have been keeping tabs on his race reports,which have shown tremendous participation on the river if not on the ocean, which has been particularly rough recently with my namesake Arthur whipping up the water. At our last Bridge meeting, we discussed whether it was feasible to have a Zoom Club Meeting, which had been suggested by some of our members. As the Bridge is only a small group and we sometimes have a hard time trying to make sure we are not talking over each other, it was voted down... BUT, our Rear Commodore, Kevin Kerwin, who is also a member of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club, informed me yesterday that CCSC is going to hold their General Meeting this week. He is going to join it to see how they handle it. If he tells me it goes ok, then we hope to have a Zoom meeting ourselves in June. So keep your eye out for news on that front.
Stay safe, continue to follow CDC and local guidelines as we enter another month with the virus now having taken over 100,000 lives. We don’t wish to see any of our members adding to that statistic. And last of all on this Memorial Day, please take a moment to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice helping to keep us free.
