  • 1000 and 17:30 on Wednesdays.

Meet at the first marina gate on the boardwalk fifteen minutes before sailing time. Boats are not available for rental during social sails. Members may recommend other time slots for social sails to the Board.

Skipper volunteer’s decisions with respect to social sails are final including go/no-go and sail foreshortening decisions. All members must wear a PFD during social sails.

Skipper volunteers indicate their commitment to skipper a social sail by entering their name on the BSSC calendar. Skipper assignment will be on a first come first assigned basis. Skippers are encouraged to volunteer whenever their priorities permit.

Social sails are open to full members and social members. Each member and the skipper volunteer will pay $10 for a social sail, which is usually about two hours long. Payment is in cash prior to casting off and there are no refunds. If there are insufficient places for all members wishing to sail, those not sailing may give their name to the skipper volunteer and receive priority at the next sailing they attend.

In consideration of other members and to avert fire risk on board, smoking or other sorts of flame are not permitted on club boats. Similarly, in consideration of other members, children under 13 and pets cannot be taken on a social sail. Youth under 18 should be accompanied by an adult. Families are welcome to take pets and younger children on board when they have rented a boat.
