Safety-at-Sea is at the heart of the Storm Trysail Club. We host Safety at Sea seminars, conferences, and webinars throughout the year for adults and youth sailors, and also provide free digital resources for the public. Our goal is to be leaders and provide education for all sailors to learn and stay safe while sailing.

Upcoming Seminars:

Houston Yacht Club

April 10th (Virtual) & Sept 25th/26th (In-Person)

Due to the lingering pandemic STC has restructured the Gulf Coast Safety at Sea event into three parts: Self-Guided Online, Instructor Led Zoom (April 10), and In Person (Sept 25/26)

SUNY Maritime College


Due to COVID-19, the Storm Trysail Club has cancelled its one-day, US Sailing sanctioned Hands-on-Safety-at-Sea Seminar on Saturday, May 16, 2020, at SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx.
