We have socials after every race and various other social events throughout the year, along with an Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony over the winter. All members are invited to attend all socials even if you don't race that day!

Keelboat (JAM and SPIN) socials are held after the races at Whittaker Pointe Marina, often hosted by a member sponsor with contributing side dishes. A not-unlimited supply of beverages will be provided, compliments of your favorite sailing association.  The socials are not held if the race is cancelled or postponed.

  • Interested in sponsoring a social?  The sponsor decides the theme and main dishes.  Signup here.
  • Unable to sponsor, but able to bring a dish?  Signup here.

If you have questions, send email to Caryn Benton.

Dinghy Sailors celebrate at Bow to Stern with beer and snacks after the race.
