Welcome to the Shoreline Sailing Club!

2022 Commodore’s Message 

Ahoy to all SSC Members, Returning Members, and Prospective Members

A new year is here.  It is hard to believe that we are entering our third year with this virus lingering over our lives.  Nevertheless, we bid a hearty welcome to you and to all the many possibilities that will be ours to unwrap.  There will be sailing events, delicious and joyful times together, and quite a few laughs despite the grim matters of positivity rates, booster shots, and whatever else covid sends our way. 

If you are new to our site, welcome; we hope you join our club and enjoy all the privileges of membership.  Our teams are collaborative, and our main goal is to connect skippers and crew so we can all enjoy the wonder of the seas.  If you need to be on the water as much as our members, this is the place for you!  Follow us on Facebook and Meet-up for events and announcements.  Better yet, bookmark this website and check in often.

The good news is that the vaccines and boosters have helped us trend toward a new normal.  The new normal may not be here just yet, and as that great sage Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”  And no, it ain’t over yet.  We get so close and then another surge hits us.  As that other great saying goes, “Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...”  No matter, as a club we will prevail.  Until we return to that place of implicit safety, we will continue to rely on our terrific volunteers to plan and carry out 2022 activities safely as we move into the future, virus, or no virus.  We will meet in person in our new haunt at Clark Field in Old Saybrook (across from Pasta Vita) to talk sailing and boating, occasionally with speakers, as well as socializing at our usual meeting dates, the first and third Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30 or so.  InfoGusts and EBlasts will continue as always for members.  

I hope to see you there. 

Cheers, David Zita, SSC Commodore
