Blackbeard Sailing Club, Ltd. is a private sailing club on Upper Broad Creek of the Neuse River in eastern North Carolina. Lat/Long is N35o 03.75 W76o 56.85. We are about 16 miles from the ICW 1AC marker off Oriental and close to New Bern.
This site is intended to give virtual visitors to Blackbeard Sailing Club an idea of the Club's facilities and the Club's wide ranging activities both on and off the water. It is also designed to give BSC members a further channel of communication and contact with the Club, to provide links to organizations and sites of importance and interest to visitors and members, and to provide a "Lost and Found", a "Cruising Board", a "Crew Pool", a "For Sale/Wanted to Buy", on-line "Slip Request", and many other features for BSC members. Whichever category you fit into, please feel free to look around both sections of the site. The "members only" section in this website is password protected but most of the information about the Club is available for all to read.
"The basic premise of BSC, Ltd. is, and always has been, to promote the sport of sailing. The involvement of the total family ensures that this will never change. We've all rolled up our sleeves and the Club has come a long way in a short time. Yes, there is still much to be done. But that's okay because there is little doubt that those who have done the most have gotten the most from the club. The friendships made working and playing side by side during the past years will be lasting ones. Proof lies on Upper Broad Creek..."

Water on the Docks is Off for the Winter
We have shut off water to the docks for the winter. If you keep a garden hose at your slip, you may want to consider emptying it of water and bringing it inside.

Boat US Hurricane Preparation Guide
Hurricane Irene has taught us a lesson: We can never be too prepated for a major storm! Thirteen boats in the trees. Dock boxes and dinghy racks thrown around like matchsticks. We could have been better prepared!
Boat US publlishes Preparing Baots and Marinas for Hurricanes which can be found under "Tips | Hurricane Prep".

Security at BSC
The gate should never be left open after dark! If you are not sure whether you’re the last person on site, then please assume you are and close the gate!
If you don’t know how to do this, please ask a Board member who will be happy to assist. The security of the Club’s assets (and every member’s assets) is the responsibility of each and every one of us.
