Who We Are

We are a club of sailors, power boaters, and kayakers and folks who just love our Gulf of Mexico or any body of water we may happen to be on or near.


Our club was established in 1986 and our membership ranges between 60 - 100. We currently have 65 memberships and 120 folks. 


We have at least 6 sailboat races a year for fun and trophies. Many races have nice trophies as well. As most sailors do we have post race parties where captains and crew can get together to trade tales and enjoy some time together. Our Hudson to Hooter's Race - Land'N Sea event is a highlight of the year with a race to Hooters and big after party of wings and grog. This will be our 22nd year for the Hudson to Hooters. 


We also, plan a number of cruises on our beautiful Gulf Coast. We have gone as far as Key West and as near as Anclote Island. We try and visit fun places and have a good time doing it. 


We have a very active Kayak group who plan one trip per month to places like Crystal River, Weeki Wachee River, Rainbow Springs, Hillsborough River and more. We go early in the morning and finish with a lunch. We have one or two trips a year that may be na overnight event.


We participate in community events through several annual programs. Every Year we participate in the National Coastal Clean Up Weekend. We support a nautical safety exhibit at Safety Town. 

Finally, every Christmas club members donate a generous bounty of gifts and non-perishable food items to the Hudson Elementary School for kids in need.  This year we took a full pickup full of toys and food for the kids. 

We meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30PM in the Sea Ranch Civic Association Clubhouse at 13711 Veronica Dr., Hudson, Florida. Come to one of our meetings and see what we're about, we're a great group of folks.

Visitors are always welcome, just check into the sign in desk at the front door.
