The Long Bay Sailing Association (LBSA) offers the Myrtle Beach area's only organized sailboat racing events. All of our sailboats are registered with the LBSA and can be used for racing, providing you are a member ($30 per person, per year) of their association.
Rent a boat as Skipper and bring your own crew or hop aboard with one of our Instructors. We will be designating a sailboat one race day per month with one of our Instructors for students and their family and friends to participate as crew.
We highly recommend joining and participating as much as your schedule allows. Along with using our sailboats for racing, many LBSA members enjoy taking on, and sometimes need, crew for their boats.
Racing is a great way to improve your sailing skills and their after race get-togethers are a fantastic way to get to know other area sailors. Annual dues are $30 per person or $50 per family. Please see their membership page for more information.
Dates in bold are designated as Crew with Instructor race days. If a sailboat is not designated it may be rented/used by members/students for racing, if available.
