The Who, What, When, Where & Why?
Who We Are...and Who Is Invited?
NAC Sailing Club is a group of like-minded sailors located in the greater Myrtle Beach area. Our members include experienced & beginner sailors, sailboat owners, and those that are not quite ready for sailboat ownership.
We welcome all sailboat owners as well as non-boat owners that are located from Southport, NC to Georgetown, SC to participate.
What We Do?
Each season begins with a preseason meet-and-greet, eight sails (one per month), and ends with an end-of-the-year party. Sails range from day sails with an overnight anchorage to 5 - 7 day round-trip passages.
When Does It Start?
Our season begins in March and ends in early December. See the activities calendar below.
Where Do We Sail?
Our sailing/cruising schedule includes sailing as far north as Cape Lookout, NC and as far south as Charleston, SC, with most of our schedule staying around the Myrtle Beach to Southport/Bald Head Island areas. All destinations are reachable either by ocean sailing or cruising the ICW, or a combination of the two.
Why Did We Set This Up?
To build our community of like-minded sailors...those that enjoy day sailing and coastal cruising.
Our research has shown that most, not all, sailors in our area want to get out there and sail, and they would like to do it with others. Some owners enjoy having others (crew) aboard to sail with them, while others want to "buddy-boat" to longer destinations to help build their confidence and skills.
