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

Spring is here and so is our boating excitement! 

The boats are heading to the waters of Lake Erie.  Thanks to all the volunteers that helped get the boats ready.   It’s always an undertaking to prep the boats for the waters.  The month of May will have our boat’s maiden voyage – just to shake the cob webs off – sometime literally!!

This May’s General Membership meeting is our first online registration for the summer boating events.  We are asking everyone to get through the login process PRIOR to the meeting.   Just try it!  It took me less than one minute to complete a registration for a happy hour.  Give yourself time to practice registering prior to the May 17th meeting.  At the meeting, we will give everyone time to try registering for a boat.  It may be chaos during the meeting but we want to get you through registering for 1 boating event on 1 boat.  Here’s what you can do now to prepare….

  • 1.     Login to NCSS (Make sure you see your name at the top right corner of the screen)
  • 2.     Find EVENTS on the tools bar
  • 3.     Click EVENTS to see the list of events.  (You can switch to calendar view – see on the right, about 1/3 down from the top the words SWITCH TO CALENDAR VIEW.  This may be easier for you to see the events.)
  • 4.     Choose an event to register, i.e. a happy hour!
  • 5.     Go through the process which asks you to CONFIRM your registration.
  • 6.     Check your email to see that you got the registration confirmation. 

If you get stuck on any of these items, call Ed M, Carol K, Jeff C or myself.  We will help you. 

For the meeting, bring at least one date you wish to register for.  Also, BRING YOUR SMART PHONE, TABLETS AND LAPTOPs.  We can use any of these smart devices to register. If you are proficient at navigating websites and an online user, you will catch on quickly and can help those not as online savvy.  As always, patience will be appreciated as we roll out this new process.  Also, we will continue to have paper signups. You can also contact the boat coordinators directly to register yourself for a boat.  

New Members, watch for the Boat Orientation dates.  About ½ our new members attended the April meeting.  We anticipate a larger crowd at the May Boat Orientation meeting.  You must attend a Boat Orientation to sail on the boats. 

May brings our 2nd annual NCSS Open House.  Last years was very successful. This event provides new members and prospective members a chance to network with our long-time members.  It was fun!  We’d love to see all our members at this event on May 7th.

Lastly, REMEMBER THE PIG ROAST! It’s our most popular event of the year with 100 members attending.  Mark your calendar for June 3rd at Huron basin.  This is the first social event that will enable online signup and payments!    

Happy boating this summer.
