Ladies, it's that time of year where we take over the water and show off our sailing skills! Don't worry, gentlemen, you're invited too, but Girls Got Guts Regatta requires a women to be at the helm at all times! There will be two fleets.  Fleet 1 will be comprised of boats with all-female crews and skippers.  Fleet 2 will be comprised of co-ed crews, however, as previously mentioned, only female helms are allowed throughout the entire regatta including starts.  

 

There will be an awards ceremony, dinner, and an after party with delicious Margaritas to follow! The best part? The party won't stop! Rain, shine, or crippling heat will not stop the great ladies of Grapevine Sailing Club from having a good time! And, regardless of the weather, we will still have our party!

Valentine's Derby

The Grapevine Sailing Club cordially invites you to attend the 2022 Valentine Sailing Derby, a Sailing Card Game, held on February 19th. No cost to enter! Fun for all!


Gather up the people in your life that make your heart flutter like a loose halyard on a windy day and register your boat for the Valentine Sailing Derby.


The Derby is a card-based game, not a race, that consists of a timed sail during which participants will collect game cards. See the SIs and the Notice of Derby on the registration page for more information



GSC Night Sail
Ahoy GSC Sailors!

We are having an Fun Sail this Saturday the 25th of September 2021!  The sail will begin at the Glass Cactus starting at 7pm.  The night sail should take a couple of hours, and we will all meet at Rockin' S at the Twin Coves Marina afterwards.  All boats that want to spend the night can dock in the docks in front of the restaurant, and we can make additional arrangements if we have too many boats to fit there, so please join us.  It will be up to the individual captains to provide their overnight guests with breakfast on Sunday morning.  We will sail out of Rockin' S after breakfast, starting at 10am and follow the course below in reverse, back to Scott's Landing where we can all head over to Big Daddy's and have some lunch at about noon.

There will be no formal start, this is a FUN SAIL, but we request that all boats that would like to run the course start there no earlier than 7pm since sunset will be at about 7:20pm.  We will have lighted buoys which are labeled on the Long Distance mark Positions map which can be downloaded here:

GSC Long Distance Mark Positions

This is the course to follow on the map:

          A - G - BB - FF - EE - Rockin' S

The marker at A will not be lit, since it is right in front of the Glass Cactus.  The remaining 4 buoys will be lit with red and white lights.  They will not be lit for the morning sail back to Scott's Landing at 10am.

If you happen to run Navionics, here's a link to the approximate course (the marks are not precise): 
Navionics Night Sail Course

We have made arrangements with Rockin S so we can all meet at the bar in the back with inside and outside seating.  The course above will take approximately 2 hours to complete at 4 knots.  If the wind is light, peeling off at FF and heading to Rocking S so you arrive by 9 or 9:30pm is completely OK, especially if you want to order some food.  The kitchen will continue serving until 10pm, and they are keeping the bar open for us to stay late. 

For those GSC Members who have done the old Transgrape Overnight this is a revival of that event!  It has always been great fun, and I sincerely hope to see lots of boats join us for this!  The overnight portion is optional, even sailing the course is optional, if you can't do them, join us as we arrive at Rockin' S at 9:30pm for some fun, and feel free to join us on Sunday at Big Daddy's at around noon.

Memorial Weekend Fun Cruise and Raft Up

May 28th

Register Here

Starting (on the water) at 1:00pm, this will be a very casual cruise up to the rock crusher, and then back to MacPherson Slough for the Raft Up at 3:00pm.

Whether we make it to the rock crusher and back is, of course, dependent on the wind speed and direction, but what would be nice is to have a flotilla of boats all sailing up the lake together :)

The raft up is a great way to visit with fellow GSC members, see their boats, and relax on the water!! The raft up will start at 3:00pm, after the fun cruise to the rock crusher.

 

Glenn Kimball will arrive early and anchor with his Hunter 29.5, and if you are planning to sleep overnight on your boat, please come early too so that all the boats that are staying the night are anchored/tied up in the center, which make it a lot easier when other boats want to leave sometime in the evening.

 

This is a pot-luck dinner, so please bring some food to share with others.
