Welcome to the Golden Isles Sailing Club home page. Spring is just around the corner and I am sure we are all looking forward to spending more time on the water. As you are aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our social activities were curtailed in 2020. Hopefully at least some of them will resume later this year.
Meanwhile, we have 7 local races and 2 offshore races scheduled. Please check on the website for dates and registration. I truly hope we will have more of you participate. There is a saying “that if you want to learn how to be a better sailor, start racing.” I can certainly attest to that as learning to race has greatly improved my sailing skills. Even if you do not have a boat to race, volunteer to crew with someone.
Several cruises have been scheduled beginning with a cruise to Cumberland Island on March13th. Please check event calendar on the website for all the cruises.
Due to the restrictions on our social events, your leadership has decided that the Club will find ways to reach out to the needs of our community of sailors; we are planning to provide “care packages” for 25 sailors/crew for the car ships that visit the port of Brunswick. We will need all of you to participate! We will soon be sending out a sign-up form with a list of needed items from which you may select items to donate. The local International Seafarer’s organization will assemble the packages and handle distribution. They are very excited that our club wishes to do this. More details to follow on this.
Also, realizing that we need to have better communication with and among our membership, we have started a Member's Facebook Group. Information, articles, photos and more will be updated regularly, everyone is encouraged to post. Follow this link to join the group and invite your friends: https://www.facebook.com/groups/182105737024130. We will be adding a blog on our website as well, so check https://gisc.club regularly!
Best Regards and Happy Sails to You,
