Our Sailing Club organizes events on and around beautiful Lake Auman (West End, NC). The events include sailboat races, a Learn-to-Sail course, sailing boat tours around the lake and many social activities. All sizes of sailboats can participate in the racing events thanks to the Portsmouth handicap system. Our social events include after-race BYOB Events, Boat Parades, Rafting Parties, Banquets and more. The Events page on this web site provides you some idea of what we do during a year. The Seven Lakes Sailing Club is open to any Seven Lakes resident or landowner who has an interest in the water or in boat related social events.

New SLSC Season 2017Written by Bert van Domselaar
Category: 2017 Announcements
Published: 31 March 2017
Ahoy, and welcome back to a new season of the Seven Lakes Sailing Club!! We have planned many exciting events. Some of the featured events will include our popular social events, tour events for smaller sailboats, and of course our series of organized races.
The skippers and their crew will sail many races this season including three mid-summer evening informal races. There is a list of upcoming events in the right column of most of our web site pages. The full calendar and more information about all events can be found on the events page.
Family membership is as simple as completing the registration and membership form, printing and signing the Disclaimer of Liability statement and returning the signed statement with your check for the family membership dues of $25, either by mail to Nancy Workman at 3420 Seven Lakes West or by bringing it to the front desk at the West Side Park Community Center. Your membership is confirmed when the Disclaimer of Liability statement and the check have been received and the registration and membership form has been completed.
The registration and membership form includes a section to mark volunteers interests to support our sailing club events. All our events are carried out by our invaluable volunteers, without whom we would not be able to function. We ask that each family membership volunteers at least once for a task of your choice during the year. You can mark more than one volunteer interest. A Board member will contact you later to match up events with dates convenient for you.
Those members who already have entered their registration information on the web site, please, login as a member and update your personal information and choices for the volunteer interests, and send the signed Disclaimer of Liability with your check to Nancy Workman.
I am looking forward to meeting you all in this new SLSC season!
