…I had my first overnight cruising experience and I made friends I’m still sailing with 2 years later. A great program!   Karey J. -- SSC member since 2011

Women’s Racing Program

Summer racing programs at SSC are tons and tons of fun! Monday nights are spent racing in Sloop Tavern Yacht Club’s Ballard Cup and we are so proud of our all women J/105 team!


The women’s race team often participates in the Ballard Cup Monday Night Series. With an experienced skipper on board, the women’s crew can build on sailing skills they already have and begin to learn the ropes of sailboat racing. We invited all levels of experience to join the women’s race team!

My favorite SSC memories are the women’s cruising trip to Port Townsend, women’s racing team for Ballard Cup 2013(girls rock!), and learning to race on a J/24 in 2008…   Susan N. -- SSC member since 2007
