BFSC COVID-19 Policy:


Barefoot Sailing Club wishes to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission at its events.


The safety of our members and their guests are our primary concern during the pandemic.


All skippers and their crew/guests should follow the CDC, State of Georgia and local guidance, such as use of face masks, hand-washing and social distancing, especially when on land.


  • As responsible Skippers, you decide how many and which crew are welcome aboard your boat

  • Racing and Cruising resumes without pre- or post-event gatherings

  • Club sponsored social events are still on hold until further notice

  • All Skippers and Crew will sign the COVID-19 risk waiver of liability before leaving the dock


The COVID-19 risk waiver is here, and should be signed, dated and returned to the BFSC Vice-Commodore at tbeachem(at)

April 3, 2021 - First Saturday Cruise and Spring Race #2

Are you ready to get away for some much-needed fun in the sun?

Some Lake Lanier Sailors have organized a bareboat charter out of the BVIs from May 1 to May 8.  Get ready to bareboat in the beautiful Caribbean turquoise waters or have a captain and chef on an all-inclusive yacht!  Whatever option you choose, the perfect yacht is ready to welcome you aboard for your best vacation on the water yet!   Delta flies directly to St. Thomas and fares are running about 1/2 of the usual amount. So far, we have two 42' monohulls with 3 cabins and 2 heads committed with full crews.  Entry requirements will include having a COVID test 5 days before entry.   


If you are interested in joining this cruise and can gather enough crew to fill a 2, 3 or 4 cabin monohull or catamaran, contact your cruising captain, Norman Plotkin, to learn more details and estimated costs.

Update 2/26/21:  Note, water ferries from St Thomas to Tortola are not running but expect to start back up by April 15, we hope.  If not, consider flying directly to Tortola.   

Update 4/10/21:  We're also planning a similar trip May 2022.  Interested?                            Please sign up here.
