New VAr 37 Commissioned

Dear Members and Friends,
The new VAr 37 was out of the water this week and we were very busy commissioning her. I am happy to say that she is fully commissioned and back in the water. She looks absolutely beautiful at the dock with her new VAr sails. She was definitely worth the wait.
We have been very busy getting all of the boats in the fleet ready for sail. After the tireless work of our amazing Maintenance Staff – Tulio, Sean, Rob and John, we are in pretty good shape. We are also busy with Corporate Racing Events. If your company would like a team building event, Sailing is the perfect activity. Not only is it a beautiful day on the water, but everyone absolutely loves it! Teddie has been busy planning special events for many area corporations. She can even plan a lovely luncheon or cocktail party on one of the Norwalk Islands for your team. For more information, contact Teddie at
Due to Popular Demand, Teddie has created an “SSC Members Board” on the SSC website. We are listing members who are looking for other members to sail with or looking for crew. See more information below.
Our classes are filling up for the rest of the season as well. If you would like to improve your sailing skills to prepare for a Winter Charter Cruise in the Islands or get your spouse into a class to find her passion for sailing (and to help you crew) – sign up on our website at “Instruction”.
The Dories Camp is bigger and better than ever. Kelly and Peter are doing a fabulous job with the kids. The little sailors are coming up from the dock everyday laughing and soaking wet! Sign your kids up to join in the fun. We have camp sessions until the last week of August and we still have some spots available. You get a 10% discount on Camp with your Membership.
Happy Sailing!

Summer Camp in Full Swing

Dories Camp 
We had more smiling faces at our Sailing Camp this morning. The kids had a great time out on the water with our new instructor Kelly Weigold. Kelly ran the Nantucket Community Sailing Camp last year and we are lucky to have her teaching our Summer Camp this year. We still have some spots available in future weeks, we even have a camp the last week of August — after most camps have closed – if you’d like to sign your children up.
