Sailing Club Directors
Erskine Lakes is a wonderful place to live and play. As you might have already seen, we have organized Sailing Regattas throughout the boating season. There is an open invitation to all ELPOA members to join us and see what Sunfish Sailing and Racing on Erskine Lakes is all about. First, the club is open to ALL sailors - novice, intermediate, and advanced. Those who have never sailed before are also invited. You don't need to have a sailboat in order to sail. There are currently several club-owned boats in sailing condition, available to members. You can always give sailing a try by taking a ride with any one of us, as well. We offer a Discover Sailing Program that provides the fundamentals to get you started or improve your sailing skills. Members are happy to provide tips and techniques, from light air tactics to building a homemade wind indicator. If you are in the market for a sailboat, we can give you pointers on what to look for (and what to avoid) in purchasing a new or used boat. Anyone interested in lending or donating their Sunfish to the Club, we would appreciate it; or, if you are selling a Sunfish, we have Club members who are always in the market for a sailboat.
This year, we have a very active sailing season (May through October); including a Summer Racing Series, Women's Racing Series, Jill & Jack Regatta, Instructional Days, Erskine vs. Cupsaw Challenge, a growing and very competitive Junior Sailing Fleet (ages 10 through 17), and the annual "Run Whatcha Brung" (open to all ELPOA members using any type of human or wind-powered watercraft), held on ELPOA Day, with social activities as well. Club members receive racing results, details and information of upcoming activities through the Club e-letter (via e-mail) and the ELPOA Courier.
Here is the best part - basic annual dues are only $20.00 per family.
The use of a club loaner boat for racing or practice cruising is just an additional $10.00 per family for the entire season. All that is required is a reservation with a club officer. Boats are loaned out on a first come, first served basis.
So, again we invite all of you to enjoy the lake community and see what The Erskine Lakes Sailing Club is all about. Whenever you see us gathered at Little Beach or on the water, please feel free to stop by or join in!
