2015 Sailing Club

bbheaderThe new and improved Boat Bumz Sailing Club is now up and running.  Check out the Club Page and give me a call. I am working on the new online booking system for both the boats and sailing school classes. Information on the individual boats will be on that system with a link to them. The 25’s are rented daily up to 3 days max. Just because they are small and it’s really camping. The 27’s can be chartered for a minimum of 2 days and up to 7 days. They don’t have refrigeration, yet, but I’ve got a work around that will get you through a week. The 34 Irwin is cruise ready and can be chartered for a minimum of 3 days, up to 10 days maximum, plenty of time to cruise the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, Outer Banks, Dismal Swamp and Cape Lookout to Wilmington.

Whether you want to cruise the whole time or day sail and stay in New Bern we have you covered. There will be scheduled flotillas with tours, raft ups, beach parties and great fun. This is a great way to build experience and gain confidence for your future bareboat charters.

I’m even going to race a little this year with the Neuse Yacht Racing Association and I’m looking for crew on the Irwin 34. The Capri’s, Catalina 27,and rumor has it a Hobie 16, are available for race crews to charter as well . 2015 is going to be a great year, come and join us!

    I would be interested in crewing for the races. What’s the schedule?

    Do we have to have prior experience to be on a race crew?

      Prior experience racing or sailing? I’m pretty much a newbie when it comes to racing so that wouldn’t be a problem. I would be open to working someone in who wanted to see what is was about and introduce them to sailing. BBSC members and prior students would have preference for crew positions though.

        That would be great if you could work me in. I have little exprience sailing in general. But I am willing to learn.
