| 2017 Program Dates are Set

As we prepare for 2017, we want to make sure our past sailors have a sneak peek at our schedule and save a spot before official registration opens in mid-January. We will notify you as soon as registration is officially open and give you two weeks from that time to confirm your spot and pay before we release the spot to others. Just one small thing we are doing this year to make sure it's the best summer yet!

And before you go, don't forget to save the date for some of our upcoming special events:


Friday, January 20 -- 5pm-8pm
Join us for games, popcorn and movies. Parents can enjoy dinner or reconnecting with others at the bar. We'll be joining Club members who will be celebrating the reopening at an event hosted by the Board of Directors
