Celebrate the 4th on the 1st!


Let’s celebrate the 4th of July on Saturday the 1st of July by getting as many sailboats as we can out on the lake.

Bring a friend. Bring your family. This won’t be a race, just fun and fellowship at Waccamaw Sailing Club and all boat types are welcome.

Hotdogs and Hamburgers will be provided. Bring a side or desert and the beverage of your choice. We will eat between 5:30 and 6:00 so everyone will have time for a good sail and those traveling home will not be too late getting home. Saturday the 8th will be the make-up date if we have bad weather on the 1st.

If you plan to come email Bill your head count by noon Friday, the 30th, at

Let’s have fun at the Club and on the Water.
