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.

Please be aware that the 4th is a very busy time in Seabrook with many Houstonians coming down to watch the fireworks.  Please take this congestion into account when making your travel plans.  Because of high traffic volumes expected on that day, Seabrook police will be closing Todville Rd in front of the club to all traffic except local residents and Seabrook SC members.  If you're planning on attending 4th of July festivities at the club you'll need to identify yourself as a club member for the Seabrook Police.

To identify yourself as a Seabrook SC member please find the email sent to you by Debra Currie (Social Governor).  In that email there is a link to a document.  Please print out and place the document on the dashboard of your car on that special day.

Lots of GREAT activities are planned at the sailing club !!!  If you haven't RSVP'd for the party you can do that in the email sent from Debra Currie.  Please, include your guest names on your RSVP for the event so they can appear on the police guest list.  A police officer will be restricting entrance to the club.

Wednesday Night Windsurfing

Update - 6/25/2014

Make the best of your week by coming out tonight for the Wednesday Night Windsurfing Races at 7pm.

The rain last week scared many from showing up. There were only 4 of us that sailed and three that kind of raced. Sam was playing cat and mouse with Rene and me. He would get out in front and then sail back around to us and then race us again. I could tell he was having fun. We did just two informal self starting races. Even though Sam could have easily won he let me and Rene take first and second. Best of all there were no collisions, even between me and Rene.

The best way of getting through the work week is to come out and race with us on Wednesdays. I hope to see you there.

Summer Solstice Regatta - Results posted

Seabrook Sailing Club's annual Summer Solstice Regatta was held on the weekend of June 21/22.  The regatta was a great success with good racing and lots of fun for everyone.  The wind was good, between 10-15 knots both Saturday and Sunday.  There was one rain shower on Saturday, but no lightning nor thunder.  The Race Committee was cautious and sent everyone in for lunch while it passed.  Then back out for more racing.

The turnout was excellent, and the racing results are posted below ...

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.

SSC Spring Series Racing

Our first spring series race is on Saturday, April 5. Skipper's meeting at noon, and first start at 1pm. Come one, come all boats willing to race. 3 one-design boats constitute a class, and others will test their mettle in the Portsmouth Class. Rumor has it the Hobies are building a fleet to rival the Lasers this year. Sunfish and V15 fleets are expected to build on last year's momentum.
