Annual Awards and Recognition Banquet
On Saturday evening November 7, the members of the Seven Lakes Sailing Club were holding their Annual
Awards and Recognition Banquet at the Seven Lakes West
Community Center. The excellent dinner was catered by
Rhett’s restaurant from Southern Pines. After the dinner the awards were handed out for the series of sailing races this year. Awards winners were Paul Kirst, Yvonne Short, Bruce Keyser, Bob Fewkes and Bert van Domselaar. The most improved sailor award went to Yvonne Short. Special attention was given to the many volunteers in the Sailing Club for the races (see photo below) and the members of the Social Committee for organizing the social events. The Nikki award went to Amy Avery. The members of the SLSC Board were re-elected for another year: Bert van Domselaar (Commodore), Bob Fewkes (Vice-Commodore), Nancy Workman (Treasurer) and Paul Kirst (Secretary).

Our Lobster Fest on August 15 was a great success. We had more than 100 participants who all made it a super event. Thanks everyone for joining the party!!
I would like to thank all those volunteers (and there were many!) who helped making this a fantastic evening!
With thanks to Jean Downer we have many photos of the event. Click here and then on 2015 Photos and Lobster Fest.

The Seven Lakes Sailing Club organizes sailing and social events. The sailing events include formal races around defined courses, Learn-to-Sail and Introduction to Racing courses and other sailing related activities. Activities are scheduled on Lake Auman. Our social events include after-race BYOB Events, Boat Parades, Rafting Parties, Banquets and more. The Events page will give you some idea of what we do....and how much fun we have.
The Sailing Club is open to any Seven Lakes resident or landowner who has an interest in the water or in boat related social events. This includes power boaters and non-boaters.
Current news and announcements can be found on the Announcements page of the site. Notice of new postings will be announced in the Announcements window on the right. Current news and announcements may be posted by any of the Club's members.
Because club members have a variety of sailboats, racing events are run under the US Sailing version of the Portsmouth handicap system. The club also includes a number of power boating members who have interests in sailing activities.
