Summer Sailstice Open House:

On Sunday afternoon, June 23 the Keyport Yacht Club will hold an open house to introduce the public to sailing and celebrate the natural beauty of Raritan Bay.
This is your chance to take a tour of the club, go aboard actual racing and cruising sailboats, and learn first-hand from our members on subjects including:
- ASA Sailing and Navigation - Discover our learn-to-sail and navigation courses.
- Kids Summer Sailing Camp - Building confidence is fun.
- Cruise the Bay and Beyond - Some go as far as Maine, others to the Bahamas.
- Sailboat Racing - Adventure among friends.
As a visitor you are welcome to take a sight-seeing ride through our fleet of 120 sailboats on the club's two launches.
This is truly a family affair: Kids are welcome and there'll be free snacks.
Weather permitting, you'll actually go aboard sailboats on their moorings, hosted by their owners. What's it like to cruise or race a sailboat? You'll hear first-hand as they happlily answer your questions and share their personal stories about sailing. Sailing is a great sport for young and old, singles, couples and families. People from diverse backgrounds and experiences are all truly welcome.
The event runs from 1 to 4 pm and will be publicized on the Keyport Yacht Club website, Facebook, in local newspapers and news websites.
