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.


At a Glance

Message from the President - Marianne E

Our 2017 boating season is coming to a close.  This is always a sad time of year for me where we say good-bye to our boats until next year.

If you sailed on any destination sails this summer, you probably heard the phrase

“the winds are on the nose”

Oh, what a dreaded statement!  For those new to this sport, “the winds are on the nose” means the wind direction is from exactly where we are going – meaning we will be “beating” to our destination – meaning it’s going to take a “freckin” long time to get there!   Well, that has been most of my destination sails this summer.  (I think Dan B has the record for the most “on the nose” sails!) In honor of this summer’s winds conditions, I’ve written a short poem.

The winds are on the nose

So matey friends we are hosed

Just sit back and relax

Or else we’ll be perplexed

Wondering how long it’s gonna take

Before we catch a break

To sail gently into our slip

For us to grab a nip!

I hope your 2017 boating season was all you had hoped!

This October will be our annual Skippers Party where we will honor those men and women that make this all happen for the 170 NCSS members.  It’s these few folks that dare to accept the challenges of fixing stinky heads, broken engines, and botched rigging.  This is our time to say THANK YOU!  Thank you for choosing this passion so we can have a wonderful time on the waters of Lake Erie.

I hope you join us Saturday October 28th to honor our Skippers. 

Thank you, Skippers!  You make it happen.  You make this club.
