The three most important missions of any youth sailing program are Safety, Fun, and Learning in that order. SCC continues to consider the best safety practices as we look forward to the fall racing season. Our policies include small numbers of sailors and instructors at practices, masks and social distancing on land, and fixed partners for the season on the water. For specific details, please read our COVID-19 Safety Procedures.
Learn more about our high school sailing program and get some FREE ICE CREAM next Sunday, February 23rd! Our seasonal Open House returns once again to the St. Mary's College River Center, where our current high school sailors will gather to reconnect with each other and greet new arrivals. Even if you're not sure you want to commit to a season with us, we encourage you to come down and collect as much information as you can handle while enjoying your own delicious sundae!
Parents and siblings are welcome as well! Learn more about our organization, from volunteer opportunities to meeting the coach.
The SMSF Board members are working in conjunction with Historic St. Mary's City to organize a new location for SCC! Just south of the waterfront at St. Mary's College lies Chancellor Point, an area of land designated to HSMC for public access. This new location would provide a larger footprint for our assets both on land and water, a permanent building, less boat traffic, and easy access to excellent sailing conditions. SCC and the Foundation are hard at work this winter to move our program to Chancellor Point as soon as March 2020! We will need lots of help in the form of fundraising, work parties, and much more! If you want to be a part of this movement, please contact our Executive Director to find out what you can do to help.
In November, SCC held its 3rd annual Awards Banquet, hosted once more by the Harry Lundeberg School of Seamanship in Piney Point. Guests enjoyed excellent food and a showcase of our sailors' accomplishment from the fall and spring high school seasons, plus highlights from our inaugural summer racing program. We sold out the 150 person seating area and may have to move to a bigger location next year!
Our fall high school season closed out in spectacular fashion, with both our Leonardtown and Great Mills varsity teams qualifying for the MASSA district championships in fleet and team racing. Leonardtown finished 7th at both events, which featured the best teams from New York to Virginia. Great Mills was close on their heels but finished further back in both regattas. With nearly 100 schools registered in the district, it is a testament to our sailors' skills and dedication that they have come this far! Good luck to all our seniors as they eagerly await their final spring season.
With the completion of the MDISA Team Race Qualifier on October 26th, SCC sailors, parents, and volunteers capped a stellar season that saw us host 7 different events over 8 weekends. These ranged from JV fleet regattas to varsity team regattas to a Sea Scout regional qualifier for their international Koch Cup. For the MDISA Qualifier regatta, which sent both our varsity teams to the district championship, everyone's favorite Paskoff design team produced another amazing print to sell on our apparel!
