Denver Sailing Club

The Salty Dog Sailing Club (SDSC) is a Colorado nonprofit Denver Sailing Club group of adults interested in sailing and socializing with others who share their love of sailing. Boat owners and non-boat owners, singles and couples are welcome.

This Denver Sailing Club hosts about 12 partial-day sails or weekend sails each season at area lakes. Three-day weekend sails may include Colorado sails at Granby, Dillon, Sterling and Pueblo, as well as McConaughy in Nebraska and Glendo in Wyoming. We also host a variety of fun events and educational workshops on shore throughout the year.
