Whether you have a boat now or hope to get one in the future, or are in the retired sailor camp, there is something for you
in the club.
• Join with other racers on around-the-buoys races from spring to fall. Extra crew is always welcome, so this is a great way
to get introduced to sailing even if you are boatless. We have a boat-crew matching service available if you are not sure where to start.
Get connected with the distance racers if longer races are your thing. Being on a race committee boat is a great way to meet people and learn
the ropes of racing.
• Join with other cruisers if you have a boat that allows overnight stays and you want to share the experience of cruising
with a compatible group of sailors. Cruises may be just for a weekend, for several weeks, or focused on a single fun event or
activity. Each cruise is hosted by a volunteer Cruise Captain to plan the cruise and associated events. We have anchoring cruises,
marina cruises, dinner cruises, family-friendly cruises, pet-friendly cruises and more challenging distance cruises in the Chesapeake
Bay, off-shore, and in nearby North Carolina.
• Come to training seminars and monthly membership meetings to learn more about sailing, safety at sea, racing techniques and
more. Many of these are potluck dinners although we also hold meetings at local venues.
• Volunteer to help with races and other activities to get up close and personal and get to know the rest of your fellow
sailors in their natural habitat. There are always things to do and volunteering will get you connected the fastest.
The Commodore’s door is always open if you have questions about the club.
