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.

June 2018 Newsletter - May was another eventful month. We were privileged to have representatives of the St Lucie River Power Squadron speak to us at our May meeting about their numerous educational offerings. A flyer on their next boating course appears elsewhere in this Log.
Just a word to those of you doing your rain dance: YOU CAN STOP NOW. Inclement weather caused a postponement of our Cerulean Cup race to Ft Pierce. Its been rescheduled for the weekend of June 9th. As it happens, the Ft Pierce club also has a race scheduled for that Saturday. This created an opportunity for us to join them. We are therefore expanding the Cerulean Cup to three days; racing up on Friday June 8th, doing the Saturday ocean race with the Ft Pierce club, then racing back on Sunday. The Ft Pierce club is hosting us in a BBQ on Saturday evening at their waterfront clubhouse. Details at the June meeting. In addition, our Summer Sailstice river race will take place the following weekend on June 16th. Busy month!
Our program for the June meeting will feature a video and discussion on hurricane preparedness for your boat. June 1st is the start of hurricane season and we’ve already had Alberto. Find out what works and what doesn’t from local experts (SLSC members).
p.s. We’re still looking for people to fill our vacant Rear
Commodore and Fleet Captain positions. See the discussion elsewhere in this Log
Let’s have fun on the water
