sailing club in myrtle beach


LBSA is a non-profit, social boating club based in Little River, SC, and made up of enthusiastic and friendly people with one goal in mind - Enjoy and Grow Sailing in our Area.  The club provides members, their families and their guests great times through fun events, friendship and entertainment both on and off the water.

We invite all; those who love to sail or those wishing to find out if sailing is for them. Non-sailboat owners (potential crew) may be interested in LBSA's Crew Program that assures that every effort will be made for you to be placed on a boat for Club races, fun sails or day-sail and overnight cruises.

We look forward to hearing from you about Joining LBSA!

Our Sailing Area

Access to sailing and the Atlantic Ocean is obtained by passing through Little River Inlet, with Bird Island, NC and Waites Island, SC on either side of you. LBSA sailboat races, day sails and raft-ups are typically held in this area. Most of our sailing opportunities are located on the South Carolina and North Carolina coastlines, between Bald Head Island, NC and Charleston, SC.
