Landscape Donations Needed

So far we have collected over $300 from members toward our goal of $750 for this fall.  We plan to plant dogwoods, red buds and a large red crepe myrtle during the prime fall planting season.  We also have some azaleas donated to place in the woods to brighten up our spring colors.


Ellen Beery, Garden Gang chair will be out of town into November, so please send contributions of $30, $50. or $100 to Mark Brennesholtz, 9322 Ocean Drive, Emerald Isle, NC  28594.


Keep it coming to beautify BSC!

Notice of Intent to Dispose of Abandoned Property

Notice of Intent to Dispose of Abandoned Property
Our dry storage and dinghy captains have been working diligently to identify the owners of all of the boats and trailers on our property.  There have been pictures and locations of unidentified boats listed in the Epitaph for the last three months, and progress has been made.  There are still a number of items stored at the club for which we do not know the owner.  Boats and trailers that we consider abandoned property.  This has been a growing problem, and one that needs to be addressed.  If you haven’t done so, review the list and let the appropriate person know if an item is yours.
If you have not notified Blackbeard Sailing Club by workday, your item will be removed from club property.
Eddy Parker, Commodore

Membership Application Form

Our Membership Application Form has been revised to accommodate the new Intermediate Membership class. The new form is available online from the Members | Club Documents page. Paper copies are also available in the Clubhouse. As a brief refresher, please make note of the Membership process as outlined here:

  • Application for membership requires two sponsors who must be current members in good standing. One of the sponsors has to have been a member for more than one year. These members will explain the basics of the Club and will act as mentors.
  • Once the prospective Member and his/her sponsors have filled out the Application form, one of your sponsors should ensure that it reaches the Membership Committee.
  • The Membership Committee will schedule an interview with the prospective Member—an informal discussion to determine what their expectations are and to explain more about BSC. 
  • The next step will be to email names and addresses to the members at large who will have 10 days to contact a member of the Board of Directors with any questions.  
  • At the next BOD meeting, the prospective Members’s name will be submitted for approval. 
  • Once approved, the Membership Committee will schedule an orientation session. We usually wait until we have 4 candidate families before scheduling orientation.

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.
