Sail Nauticus hosts a variety of special events throughout the year. Check out the links below for upcoming and annual events!
3rd Annual Sock Burning
The ritual of burning your winter socks began in Annapolis in the 70's and has been maintained as a tradition among sailors ever since. It heralds the beginning of spring and the new sailing season; a time in which deck shoes will be worn without socks, and toes will be free!
So join our sockless soiree and celebrate the beginning of the 2017 season!
-Member/Academy race in the morning
-Start Sailing Now Gear Kit for New Members
