2022 Community Events
Sail Sand Point offers community events throughout the summer. Whether you are a regular at SSP, or this is your first time on the water, we invite you to join us during the summer for free boat rides and enjoy our side of the lake.
Start of Season Volunteer Set up Day
Join us in early April to set up the site for the season, to meet our other volunteers and get oriented to the site, and to get excited for the upcoming season. SSP grills burgers and attendees bring a side to share.
Season Kick-Off Party
Each May, Sail Sand Point is abuzz with free boat rides, lawn games, BBQ & music as we celebrate the start of our Boating Season! Gather your friends and come on down to Sail Sand Point’s Season Kickoff Party on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 4 to 7:30 PM on the pier.
Free Full Moon Sails/Paddles
Full Moon Sails are held from May – August on the Saturday closest to the full moon. We start around 8-8:30pm with a dessert potluck and aim to be on the water around 9. Volunteers will be skippering (or you can take a boat out on your own) RS Quests, Hobie Waves, FJ’s and keelboats, or you can come out and launch your own boat. Boat spaces are on a first come first serve basis so arriving early is recommended.
Party on the Pier
Looking for a fun way to spend a summer evening? Join us at our annual Party on the Pier on the last Saturday in July and enjoy a lovely evening of food, drinks, music, and fundraising! Visit our event page for more information.
Free Friday Night Keelboat Sailing
On select Friday nights between Memorial Day and Labor day, SSP offers free Friday night keelboat sailing. Rides start at 6:00 pm and are first come, first serve. Be advised that this is a hands-on experience suited for adults and teens who have small boat sailing experience.
End of Season Volunteer “Take down and button it up” Day
The final volunteer work party happens in late September after programs end and typically includes lots of de-rigging, tarping and general stowing of sails and gear for the season. Sometimes combined with the Volunteer of the Year event SSP grills burgers and attendees bring a side to share.
Volunteer of the Year and End of Season Bash
Join us in late September to celebrate the end of the summer season and to recognize SSP’s fantastic boating community and fabulous volunteers. SSP grills burgers and attendees to bring a side to share, attendees reminisce about the summer, and the Volunteer of the Year is announced.
