Founded in 1959 by a group of ardent sailors, the club dedicates itself to safe cruising, racing, boating education, and good fellowship among sailors. We are a family organization with members from Maine to the Chesapeake. The club, which is run entirely by members, is an affordable way to belong to a recognized yachting organization. Our wide range of activities appeal to new boat owners as well as to more experienced sailors and serious offshore racers. The club has no clubhouse, docks, tennis courts, swimming pools or restaurants, but offers its membership a wide array of cruising, racing, informational and social events year round. Currently, our membership includes more than 200 boats from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New York, Connecticut, and the Chesapeake Bay.
If you enjoy sailing, want to learn more about it, desire to expand your cruising and/or racing horizons, would gain confidence by sailing in the company of others, and would like to meet friendly people who share your interest in sailing, perhaps you should consider the Blue Water Sailing Club.
Becoming a member of the Blue Water Sailing Club requires completing an application for membership as well as sponsorship by a current member and seconding by two additional members. Prospective new members may join a BWSC event as a guest in order to seek sponsorship and experience what the BWSC has to offer.
