March 30 LBSA Get-Together & Shake-Down Sail

The Long Bay Sailing Association, located in Little River, SC, has announced the location and time of their Get-Together and Shake-Down Sail.

We will be meeting Saturday, March 30 at 9:30am poolside at Myrtle Beach Yacht Club. Plans are a meet-and-greet, discuss the upcoming sailing season then go sailing for a few hours. Due to prior engagements I will be participating in the meet-and-greet portion only. There should be an opportunity for you to hop on a LBSA Member's sailboat and go sailing with them. This meeting is open to ANYONE INTERESTED IN SAILING, whether you have a sailboat or not, or have experience sailing or not. Our (Myrtle Beach Sailing School and Long Bay Sailing Association) goal is to get like-minded people out on the water enjoying sailing and building friendships.

Myrtle Beach Sailing School is also looking to fill our boats for the first three races of the season.
"Wait! I have never raced (or sailed) before!"
Who cares! Racing is a great way to learn to sail. Just call us.

This is the first of many FREE sailing opportunities we have planned for this season and will be a great way for you to gain experience sailing while also meeting those in our sailing community.

If you are interested in these opportunities please call or text Jason at 843-241-6874

Race Days: April – May

Join Us For April & May Race Days!

Saturday April 6 & 20, and May 4

Coastal Carolina Sailing Club members and current and former sailing students of Myrtle Beach Sailing School are invited to join us for the 2019 Long Bay Sailing Association (LBSA) racing season beginning in April.

Most racing weeks we will have one of our sailboats available for racing and have 4 crew spots available to fill. Bill or Jason will be attending to "guide" but you will be the ones doing the sailing. There are typically two races per day so crew positions will be rotated. If our sailboat fills there may be opportunities to hop on another LBSA member's sailboat.

If you are interested we suggest attending (not mandatory) the Skipper's Meeting Saturday, March 30 that the LBSA is holding, time and location TBD. This is a great way to meet other like-minded sailors and learn some of the racing rules.

Race 1 & 2:  April 6 - Island Song Morgan 321
Race 3 & 4: April 20 - Bohemian Blue Beneteau 390
Race 5 & 6: May 4 - Bohemian Blue Beneteau 390

Be prepared to bring food, beverages and sunscreen as we will be on the water a good portion of the day.

For those interested in participating or have questions please call Jason at 843-241-6874.
