Upcoming Events

Liberty Sailors, potential members and guests, 

The LSC Board closely tracks the COVID-19 situation and guidelines and learned a lot during our shortened 2020 sailing season. 

For 2021, we are currently planning to conduct a full sailing season within the prevailing guidelines.  Among other things, we are currently sailing with crews to limit COVID-19 exposure potential.

2021 Racing Season: 
We are planning a full racing season for Wednesday & Thursday evenings.  There will be four, 5-week series' starting in April.  A Race Committee will set up a course and keep score.

2021 Cruising Season: 

Although the sailing season was shortened in 2020, with smaller crews, the club adapted by holding many more scheduled and impromptu sailing opportunities.  In 2021 the intent is to continue getting everyone out on the water as much as possible.
