Salty Dog Sailing Club of Denver

We’re a group that enjoys fun sailing and social events on Colorado lakes and beyond

Join us for fun sailing with lots of socializing, too. We’ve been an adventure-loving and active adult sailing club—since 1984!—that offers single- and multi-day on-the-water events for members and guests. We welcome boat owners and non-owners with all experience levels, from beginner to expert. Meet us for one of our fun sailing events, whether a local day sail or a multi-day event at out-of-town lakes and reservoirs.

We Coordinate Sailing Events

We even help find crew

For boat owners and skippers, we can provide crew members to help you rig, launch, sail, and then put everything away. We have members who know the lakes, marinas, and boat supply stores in the area. We have newer sailors who want to learn as well as more experienced sailors with sailing stories to share. Membership is free to boat owners who provide their boat for a specified number of club sails.

If you don’t own a boat, membership in the Club will give you the chance to sail with different skippers on a variety of boats. Not only will you learn the ins and outs of lake sailing but you’ll learn how to rig and launch boats. If you’re skilled already, share your knowledge! No sailing experience is required—just a willingness to participate and learn and a desire to meet fellow sailors.

Want ocean-sailing
(blue-water) experience?

Our members have organized many charters that have taken us all over the world: through the Panama Canal, the Bahamas, Tahiti, Italy, Greece, Croatia, New England, the Florida Keys, the Great Lakes, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the British Virgin Islands, and more! The friendships you’ll build here could be your ticket to sail the world (even though these are not official Salty Dog events).
