Cruising

The common bond of all cruiser is that we enjoy sailing. Newcomers and experienced sailors are equally welcome.

SPSC normally organizes around eight cruises each year, not including the occasional evening cruise to local destinations. The cruising schedules determined each year at a Spring "Pot Luck" meeting of interested cruisers. Individuals volunteer to be cruise coordinator for a specific cruise, arranging dockage and social events.

Most passages are between four and seven hours in duration. Some destinations include other sailing clubs, with who we have reciprocal docking privileges. Others destinations include commercial marinas or quiet anchorages. Once arrived, social events such as happy hour, light-hearted games, group barbecues or visits to a nearby restaurant are invariably organized.

South Port Sailing Club also organizes longer cruises to Lake Erie and Lake Huron; usually alternating each year. The duration, activities and destinations of the cruise is mutually agreed on by the participating members.
