  • Palm Beach Sailing Center Burgee Exchange – March 11, 2018 – David and Nancy Webster – Grace

    While we have been waiting in Lake Worth, Florida for a good weather window in order to cross the Gulf Stream to the Abacos, Bahamas, we have been fortunate to discover this sailing club that in some ways reminds us of the friendly energy of HYC. We are making many new friends and arranged a burgee exchange with Alex Hill, Fleet Captain.

    The objective of the club shall be to develop, encourage and stimulate interest in sailing in the Palm Beach County area, to promote fellowship and camaraderie among local and visiting sailors, and to offer sailing education and training to members and others.

    The Palm Beach Sailing Club was founded in 1966 by sailors who wished to promote the sport in West Palm Beach. As the oldest club in the area, the PBSC offers its members many sailing related services and an active social calendar. The clubhouse is a waterfront residence built in the 1920s and offers a panoramic view of the Intracoastal Waterway and neighboring Palm Beach.

    PBSC offers visiting yachtsmen (and women!) use of the facilities (showers, club house and deck, dinghy dock, etc. for a reasonable fee. The club has no moorings and most visitors anchor out in the lagoon (Lake Worth). There are mooring balls for rent, however we learned, the hard way, that they are constructed of hard fiberglass and when wind is against current, the mooring ball hits the hull like a sledgehammer. We have the scratches and gouges to prove it! We got off that!
