Seasons Greetings!

This year we celebrated a major milestone – our 15th year of serving the Lowcountry. As we embark on our 16th year at Charleston Community Sailing, it is with our heartfelt gratitude to you, our community of sailing enthusiasts, for sustaining the worthwhile work that has helped so many individuals gain access to the water.

We hope you will agree we are making a positive impact. It is through your generosity that we are able to do what we do and your continued support is paramount to our success! Consider honoring a special sailor or someone in your life by making a gift in their honor or in memory of them. We will send them a note letting them know of your generous support of our mission.

Join us in support of Charleston Community Sailing this holiday season by making your gift today. Wishing you and yours smooth turns.

Thanks & Gratitude

This past Sunday we celebrated 15 years at our 8th Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser. We are filled with gratitude for all of the people who support, donate and volunteer their time – all which contributes to the success of CCS. The weather did not dampen the spirit of sailing in our community!

We presented the 2014 Merrythought Trophy in memory of Jack King to two deserving CCS sailors Caroline Puckette and William Scarborough – Congratulations to you both!

We will be shucking oysters at our 8th Annual Oyster Roast Fundraiser. The weather will not dampen the spirit of sailing in our community! There will be a silent auction, raffle and Zim 15s to sail (if there is no thunder & lightning). Plus we will be awarding the Merrythought Trophy in memory of Jack King to deserving youth sailors within our programs. See you at James Island Yacht Club from 3-6pm.
