I am moving to Atlanta in the spring from London, at the moment I get out to the ocean to sail every other weekend, often racing, can anyone recommend a suitable sailing club with a good mixture between cruisers and racers in Savannah?

I am a 41 year old male, experienced spinnaker trimmer, mainsheet and helm, I am also a bit of a "mister fix it" which can be good on the longer hauls. I intend to buy a cruiser racer in 18-24 months time which I will keep in the Savannah area.

You do know that it's about a 4-5 hour drive from Atlanta to Savannah, don't you?

There are several marinas in Savannah that dock the sailing boats. Isle of Hope Marina at 50 Bluff Drive Savannah, and Sail Harbor Marina at 606 Wilmington Island Road are two that come to mind right now. There are others at Thunderbolt, but I don't know the names.

I know that Sail Harbor is involved in a lot of racing tournaments in the area. Perhaps you could contact them for information.

Yes I am aware of the distance, I was not planning any mid week sails, just alternate weekends and holidays (vacations).
