Welcome to Seabrook Sailing Club

Galveston Bay’s oldest centerboard sailing club invites you to rediscover the joys of sailing!  The Seabrook Sailing Club (SSC) has been the destination on the Bay for Houston area sailors since 1934, with fleets for all ages and experience including Catamarans, Lasers, Sunfish, Optimists and Windsurfers. We offer regular social sail events, racing, organized junior sailing, social activities, plus sail and windsurf training.  
 
Come down to the Bay and visit our family oriented co-op club with new clubhouse, mast-up storage, and easy bay access.  You'll soon discover why the Seabrook Sailing Club is the place to sail and socialize on Galveston Bay.

Boat spot maintenance

All of us would like to have a property that we are proud of, that is well maintained and is attractive. We want to enjoy the grounds, invite guests, and attract new sailors to join the club. The Grounds Committee maintains the Club grounds all year long and mows every week from late March to late September. We will continue to work hard doing everything we can to make the Club look nice, but we need your help. Take pride in your Club!

Remember
1) Members are responsible for mowing their Ground Spot
2) The grass height (no greater than 4 inches) is inspected on the last Sunday of each month
NOTE: The use of weed/grass killer is strictly prohibited!

Peter Hansen currently has agreements with several members to maintain their ground spots. He is willing to do it for others as well. If you are interested contact Peter.

We decided to not assess any fines for the month of March. Consider this a grace period. Starting the end of April it is expected that all ground spots will be maintained. All spots will be assessed on Monday, April 27.

If you are having any issues with getting the mowing completed in any month please contact me so I can make note of it.
