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.
