Welcome to the St. Margaret Sailing Club
Commodore's Message

Welcome to St. Margaret Sailing Club! Our club is located on the pristine waters of
St Margaret’s Bay with its superb conditions for sailors and boaters of all ages and interests.
Since SMSC was founded more than 50 years ago, the club has grown and prospered
with a vibrant and active membership, excellent boating and social programs, a beautiful
clubhouse, and outstanding docks and marina facilities.

We offer one of the region’s strongest junior sailing programs ranging from beginner to those
for young sailors eager to hone their competitive skills, as well as adult learn-to-sail, of which
our Set Sail program has proved to be immensely popular. We have an active keel boat
racing fleet with Wednesday evening and week-end races throughout the spring, summer
and fall. As well, we have a cruising interest group that organizes seminars, short cruises and
day trips in and around St. Margaret’s Bay. A recently introduced learn-to-kayak program has
received very positive feedback.

The club’s social program operates year-round. We hold weekly TGIF dinners & special
events throughout the year, such as Chinese New Year’s, St Patty's Day, a Pulled Pork
Extravaganza, a Fish Fry & Martini Night and a Lobster Supper, to name just a few. These
events often feature live music and dancing.

SMSC has been home to many competitive National and International championships over
the years, bringing visitors and their friends and families to the Bay from the world’s four
corners. Of course “The Bay, The Wind, The Regatta” is a staple annual event for the
region’s developing dinghy competitors; likewise the St. Margaret’s Annual Keel Boat Regatta
“SMAKR” draws entries from the area for those who have advanced to larger craft.

Please explore our website for more information on our club & its activities, and our schedule
of events for 2015. If you have any questions please ask any member of our executive or
contact me directly.
