Sorry, we're not a very organized club. We'll have a winter party sometime in February, details coming soon. We'll also likely have a spring trip to Hatteras in May (is somebody organizing this?) That's a great way to learn - we rent a sound front house for a week and split the cost 8 or 10 ways. Pamlico Sound is a great place to learn - flat water, steady wind, and in most places it's shallow enough you can walk back if you get blown down wind. We can provide lesson then and have the beginner gear available. Or we can do lessons at a local lake in late spring.
