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.

March Log - We had a busy time in February. The Blessing of the Fleet Parade and raft up in Kitching Cove and the Sweetheart Regatta were both well attended and a lot of fun. Details of both are later in The Log.

In March we have the annual Don Ellis regatta in the North Fork as well as the St Patrick’s Day social. In addition to these we’re trying something entirely new. Capt Karen Hermanson will be conducting our first ever on the water man overboard exercise. How many of us can say we’ve actually had to haul a person out of the water and onto our boat. Well, on March 24th we’ll be giving it a try. This should prove to be quite a valuable experience. Details at the March meeting.

Speaking of the March meeting, Rear Commodore Brian Epperson has arranged for the weather briefer from the US Coast Guard Auxiliary 59 in Stuart to come and talk to us about weather pertaining to sailboats and sailing. Should be interesting. Also, Asta Poirier has completed the 2018 Roster. This will be available at the March meeting. Be sure to come pick up your copy.

A Focus on Learning Boating Safety by Captain Karen Hermanson

The SLSC is establishing an ongoing conversation about boating safety.  Nationally, boating deaths are increasing by 11% per year, with the vast majority occurring in inland waters or rivers, similar to that in which our club members sail.  We dedicated November’s program to focus on various elements of Prevention, Protection and basic Man Overboard procedures.  At the February Meeting we will demonstrate the use of the LifeSling, and at the March meeting we will demonstrate how to set up a Block & Tackle properly to lift a victim from the water.

All this training will culminate on March 24, 2018 when we will be practicing all components of a rescue under real life circumstances.  Member boats will rescue a person from a dinghy in the water and the crew will be observed by a trained observer.  Our progress will be monitored so that our future training can continually be improved and our skills will continue to grow.   Other activities will be planned to keep safety as an important ongoing conversation in the minds of all members so that we can enjoy an active sailing life and feel confident in preventing, or successfully dealing with any accidents that may occur.
