Welcome to the Shoreline Sailing Club!

Commodore's Welcome 2018

The Shoreline Sailing Club has been around for thirty-seven years and is an

amazing venue for meeting active, single people who have a passion for boating,

sailing and socializing. One of the greatest perks of the Club is the bond that is

formed between our members.

Our focus is getting skippers with boats to invite crew who would like to go

boating/sailing. The season traditionally starts with the club members cruising to a

local harbor for Memorial Day Weekend. We have multiple "All Member Sails" to

introduce our newcomers to the joys of spending a day on the water with the

opportunity of learning valuable skills. The largest turnout of the fleet is our annual

"Bud Cook Race", a memorial event that takes place Labor Day weekend.

Skippers and crew plan their strategies weeks in advance and the winner receives

the coveted trophy to display. A truly spectacular event.

Early in the season, the Fleet Captains are busy filling our sail calendar with day,

weekend and weeklong cruises that will carry us through the lazy days of summer.

Some of our destinations include Block Island, Coecles Harbor, Montauk, Sag

Harbor and Watch Hill to name a few. Members have cruised both east and west

from Huntington Harbor Newport and beyond. We all have our favorites, and are

happy to explore new places.

There have been a couple of skippers who have participated in offshore

adventures such as racing to Bermuda. Last year, one of our captains was the

first woman ever to sail with an all female crew from the USA to Cuba. In

November of 2017 she once again headed to Cuba to Captain a vessel with

other Club members around the south shores of Cuba. We are all looking

forward to tales of their journey.

Through out the entire year, we also enjoy an active social calendar filled with

opportunities to get better acquainted. There are "docksides" house parties, meet-up

events, theme dances, lobster bash, Commodore's Gala and a Holiday Party. Some

members like to kayak, sail small boats and hike. During the winter, many of us

enjoy chartering boats in the Caribbean. Some of our sailings have taken us to the

Abacos, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Grenadines, Spanish Virgins, and


The club meets the first and third Thursday of each month at 7:30 pm. Check our

website for latest information on meeting locations. Our meetings are a blend of

social and educational activities. Recent speakers have lectured on navigation,

seamanship, radio etiquette, sail trim, and foiling. Others have kept us abreast of

local issues concerning preserving our waters and land trusts. Initial meetings are

free. Please check us out.

Fair Skies,

Betty Kovel
