Check the Events Calendar

Come socialize with us! Our club hosts regular meetings, club cruises, annual events, kayaking events and other socials.

Annual Social Events

Several times a year all club members get together to celebrate and socialize, both on and off the water. Whether you are a sailor, a power boater, a paddler or just enjoy the water while reading a good book on  the  beach, these events have good fun for everyone.


Monthly Member Meetings

Each month our members meet to socialize and also to hear guest speakers on a variety of nautical-related topics. These meetings are in-person, but also Zoomed for members who can’t attend in person.  This has been a huge benefit for our members who go to warmer climates in the winter or are just  someplace else on a meeting night.

Learn to Sail

Join the fun! Our camps emphasize learning how to sail while building self-confidence and promoting good character.


See you on the water! Come race in our Summer Series on Lone Lake and Holmes Harbor.



Kayaking up and down Whidbey Island and beyond.  Regularly planned events and paddle buddies for those unplanned perfect weather last-minute paddles.



Cruise the Puget Sound and San Juans with fellow club members.
