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.


Our Mission
"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..."

It Could Have Been Worse!

July 4th dawned bright and clear at BSC and, if you didn't look toward Broad Creek, you wouldn't know that Hurricane Arthur had passed by us in the middle of the night. We were spared any significant damage to the clubhouse, grounds and docks. Most members' boats in Broad and Goose Creeks fared well too. However, a few unfortunate folks found their boats aground in the morning. But it could have been much worse if the storm track had been just 20 or 30 miles to the east. What a wake-up call!

Thanks to all who responded so quickly to move your boats away from the docks.

Did you know that BSC maintains a membership in Yachting Club of America? There are a number of benefits for BSC members that you will find detailed on the YCA website at ycaol.com. The primary benefit for BSC members is reciprocity at more than 700 yacht clubs across the country where BSC members have access to these clubs and their facilities.
 
The privileges available at each club are listed in YCA’s Reciprocity Guide. BSC members can log on to the YCA website with the username and password found on our website under Members | Club Documents | Yachting Club of America.
 
When you take advantage of your Yachting Club of America privileges, be prepared to prove you are a member of BSC - your gate card should work. This is a great resource that’s available to all members. Let’s make good use of it!

Boat US Hurricane Preparation Guide

Hurricane Irene has taught us a lesson: We can never be too prepared 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".

Every member should review this document!

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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Alcohol Must Be Under Your Direct Control

The Club's permit issued by the NC Alcoholic Beverage Commission is at risk if members do not comply with the ABC Commission rules. Every member who brings beer, wine or liquor on the premises must have the items under their control at all times.

If you bring alcoholic beverages to the club house, please bring them in a small cooler or bag with your name on it. DO NOT place alcoholic beverages in the refrigerators.  We have been given one warning in the past. Do not be the member that causes our permit to be revoked.
