North Coast Sailing Singles (NCSS) is a nonprofit organization of  approximately 150 single men and women drawn together by a common interest in boating and having fun.  Our skippers have boats docked on the  shores of Lake Erie from Cleveland's East 55 to Sandusky Bay and participate in evening sails, day sails, weekend sails, and an annual regatta.

NCSS offers a variety of social events year round and focuses on boating events that promote safety and fun on the water.  We welcome singles with all levels of boating experience, from novice sailors to seasoned skippers.  Boat owners (sail or power) looking for cruising or racing crew will find an enthusiastic group of individuals ready to sail at the hoist of a jib or the turn of a key.

Is NCSS for me?  If you are single and enjoy being out on the water, whether you're a seasoned boater or have never sailed but would like to try, then NCSS is for you.  Don't let Lake Erie's short sailing season slip away. NCSS will get you on the water! Check us out by joining us as a guest at our next general membership meeting.

If you have any questions about our club feel free to e-mail us.

Message from the President - Marianne  E

 Another beautiful winter day – 69 degrees!  I’m enjoying this winter weather.  Soon the weather will stay warm and we will be talking boating. Oh, wait - we already are!

The committees have been busy planning the summer boating schedules.  April and May weekends are for boat clean up and Boat Orientations.  June through September have 31 day or evening sails, 4 skills transfer sails on Monday’s in June, 6 weekend trips, and 4 more potential overnight sails. 

Thanks to the Boat Show, we have three new sailboats in the club, providing more opportunities for our members on Lake Erie.  Our fleet consists of 9 sailboats, 2 powerboats and 1 fishing boat – that’s a 33% increase in boats from last year!

COMING SOON! Our boat coordinators and web designers, led by Ed M, have been working on the NCSS website boating event sign up. Our plan is to debut this functionality at the March General Membership Meeting.   You will be able to sign up anywhere you are - at your computer, on your iPad or on your Smart Phone.  So you want to sail, do a quick check online, see what boats have available crew spots and sign yourself up.  This will not remove the past policies of contacting the skipper prior to the sail.  This will also not eliminate the paper sign up at the General Meetings.  In fact, the past procedures of signup, General meeting paper signup sheets and calling or emailing the Boat Coordinators, will still exist.  This new signup is for those savvy online users, (or wannabes) looking for a fast and easy signup process on the boat of your choice.  Also, our members will see who has already signed up and on which boat they are on – much more information at your fingertips!  So plan attending the March 15th General Membership Meeting at Cleveland Yacht Club to see the demonstration.  

Happy St Patty’s day.  Wear green - think Spring!
