Are you intimidated by the thought of hurricane-anchoring in the soft mud of our creeks? Well, once you know how, it's far safer than staying in a slip.
Have you stayed away from rafting because you're confused by the cats-cradle tangle of lines used? Well, once you know how, you'll find rafting is a terrific way to spend a weekend with friends on another boat.... and you'll sleep better doing it.
Do you find that traditional sailing texts on these subjects are overloaded with technical details you'll never use? If that's you... or maybe your crew... then the linked on the left of this page are for you!

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

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.
