 *Celebrating E Scows in Sarasota*

On December 2-3, 2023, the Sarasota Sailing Squadron will wind up the final regatta for our 100th anniversary.  E Scows have been present since 1950 and actively racing since 1992.  We have a few boats available for guest skippers and crews including housing.

This regatta is intended to encourage E Scow sailors up north to consider relocating their boats here for year round or seasonal racing.  Nearly all of our fleet members are snow birds, part-time residents and retirees. Several have flexible jobs where they can live here and up north as part of their work.  There is a nearby airport with many inexpensive Mid-West flights.

Why Sarasota?  Steady winds, warm waters and friendly inexpensive club. You can race at monthly club regattas on Saturdays, most Sundays with Melges 15s, and a few nearby invitationals as well as every Wednesday all season long.  Several owners have Melges 15s and MCs to add more racing opportunities.

Yearly membership is $700 for new, and $550 for renewing members, including monthly options.  Annual E Scow storage is $1010.  So why put your E Scow away for the winter.  Bring her here, sail and race with us.  For details, contact Ted Weihe, fleet captain at Or former E Scow Commodore, Robert Cole at
