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.

2023 Summer Series (27-May) postponed

I have decided to postpone Saturday’s (27-May) racing to a later date (TBD) due to forecasted weather.

The two wind models that I use for WSC show 27 -> 40 knot winds and 22 -> 40 knot winds for the majority of the day. Those models rarely agree, and when they do there’s a very very good chance that the forecast is correct.

In addition, the last few days have shown the same rain forecast on Saturday of close to 100% for most of the day. Mix that up with a high temperature in the low 60’s, and I’m fairly sure that makes for a miserable day on the water.

No, I do not have the make-up date at this time. Volunteers and a clear schedule will influence that date, so stay tuned in.

Luckily for everyone, you still have a chance to sign up and volunteer for a racing committee spot!

We still have openings for the remainder of the season (and the now TBD May reschedule date).

Please refer to the Race Committee page, find a free spot, and then contact me at and tell me when you want to volunteer and who will be helping. First come, first serve.
