Welcome New Members!
We are glad that you have decided to join Landfall Sailing Club. We are a group of active and fun sailors getting together to enjoy sailing and other marine related experiences that the New England Coast has to offer. We invite you to get involved by attending meetings, joining a committee and experiencing activities such as boat preparations, treks to boat shows, marine lectures, as well as dockside dinners, island charters and visits to area museums.
The following information will be helpful:
The tabs at the top of our home page lead you to links to most sections and the links on the right of the home page bring us to more information.
- Sail Coordination Process
- Notify the Sail Coordinator by 9pm on Wednesday evening that you are available to crew on Saturday or Sunday
