Next board meeting is May 2, 2017. All are welcome to attend.

Regular board meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month.

Policies and Procedures


A vote of the Board of the Key West Community Sailing Center established wind requirements/restrictions for the boats in our fleet. If the wind measures 14 knots or less, the Mariners may be signed out. If the wind measures 15 knots or higher, the Mariners must remain docked at the Center. If the wind measures 19 knots or less, any boats in the fleet, except for the Mariners, may be signed out. If the wind measures 20 knots or higher, no boats may be signed out and must remain docked. To determine wind speed, go to and check wind at Smathers Beach. That is the reading we will be using as our decision point.

Key West Community Sailing Center Mission Statement

Our mission is to advance sailing education and encourage the public and sailors of all ages to experience the joy of sailing in a safe and fun environment.
To establish and sustain ongoing programs for sailing, education and community involvement in the city of Key West and surrounding areas.
To provide safe and fun educational programs for youth interested in sailing and boating. Learning to handle small craft teaches young students seamanship, safety, self-reliance, planning and thoughtful decision making, communication, team building and confidence. We will strive to encourage these skills through our educational programs.
To impart a love of sailing as a life sport, while providing the fundamental skills necessary for participants to advance in the sport as far as their desire, skill and hard work may take them.
