Registration and Recruitment Party

Join us for Sundaes on Sunday!  A high school sailing registration and recruitment party. It will be held on Sunday, February 12th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at Southern Maryland Sailing Association in Solomons.  High School sailing season begins March 14th.

This is an opportunity to eat some ice cream, register for the Spring 2017 high school sailing season, eat more ice cream and most importantly meet new friends and fellow sailors.  And don’t forget to eat more ice cream!

Registration will be held for Leonardtown, Great Mills, Chopticon and home school high school students. Middle school students interested in participating in high school sailing are encouraged to participate!

SCC hosted another successful Glow Stick regatta.  All the boats and sailors looked glowing!  We even had “glow” trophies this year.  We had about 10 boats and 21 sailors!   Thanks Trish for making the trophies!  And thanks to Jim Young and crew for running the regatta. It was fantastic as usual!

What’s the Fastest Growing High School Sport in the US?

Reposted from October 7, 2014

What’s the fastest growing high school sport in the US?

Some hints—it uses neither stick nor ball, teams are co-ed, and competing schools often practice together and share coaches. Give up?

It’s SAILING!

From the East Coast to the West and from the Great Lakes to the Gulf, sailing clubs are sponsoring high school sailors in greater numbers than ever before. Sailing provides a great opportunity for teamwork and head-to-head racing in some of the world’s most beautiful venues, and the waters of Southern Maryland are no exception. We live in a sailor’s paradise, with great breezes, a near-year-round sailing season, and a forgiving, sandy shoreline.

The Chesapeake Bay has groomed some of the best sailors in the sport, and even though Annapolis declares itself the Sailing Capital of the US—its area high school teams routinely finish at the top in national competitions—Southern Maryland sailors are working hard to challenge them. Come out this fall to see sailors from Leonardtown, Great Mills, and St. Mary’s Ryken give those Annapolis kids a run for their money! Home JV regattas are scheduled at Tall Timbers on 14 September and 25 October, and the Mid-Atlantic Varsity championship regatta is scheduled at Tall Timbers for 17 and 18 October.
