Spring Clean Up on April 8th

The 2017 season is approaching fast . Our spring clean up is scheduled for Saturday April 8th starting at 9am. There will be lots of raking, tree trimming, plumbing, painting, and general clean up work for everyone. Tools will be available but you are encouraged to bring your own.

A lunch will be provided consisting of hotdogs, chips, baked beans, and slaw. Cake or dessert is welcome if you can provide. Please confirm food you plan to bring to myself by phone or email.

.........................................................

After lunch we will have a 30-45 minute seminar to familiarize anyone interested in learning how to assist on the race committee boat. We will review how to set a course, starting sequence, scoring, and safety procedures. This is a great way to learn how you can support sailing at WSC.

Indian Summer Regatta 2016 CANCELLED

!!!!!!!     Indian Summer Regatta for 2016 has been cancelled      !!!!!!!

Thanks to Hurricane Matthew, we will be cancelling the Indian Summer Regatta for 2016. We waited as long as we could to see if the storm would weaken or otherwise dissipate, and although it is veering away from the NC coast, the weekend forecast still sees steady winds in the mid-20's and gusts to the 40's and 50's. A bit much.

BUMMER!

Thank you for considering racing in our regatta, and for those who have already paid your registration fee, we will providing refunds shortly.

We do have regatta t-shirts for sale, if anyone is interested. You can never have enough t-shirts...

Indian Summer Regatta 2016, October 8-9

The Indian Summer Regatta will be held this year on October 8-9 at Lake Waccamaw, NC. We're looking forward to a great turnout again this year!

There's plenty of space for camping, RV's, hot showers, and a full kitchen at your disposal. Support boats will be on site, and there should be plenty of staff on-hand.

Saturday's dinner is shaping up to be a pig pickin' with the usual southern sides and Swedish apple pie, and possibly more!

You can register online at https://www.waccamawsailing.com/racing/indian-summer-regatta, and encourage you to do so, as it allows us to plan a bit better.

Hope to see you there!
