Welcome to the Monmouth chapter of SEAS

The Society for the Education of American Sailors, SEAS, was founded to promote and encourage small craft sailing activity as recreation and sport by providing low-cost learn-to-sail programs, and by encouraging relationships among all persons interested in sailing craft and water safety. As the Monmouth Chapter of SEAS, we hold meetings in Colts Neck, NJ, where we have entertaining and informative speakers each month, and we schedule weekly sailing activities throughout the summer season. Our chapter runs a full range of sailing courses from basic through advanced, including cruising. Our fleet consists of six Olympic Class Lasers, three daysailers ranging in length from 14' to 17', a 22' swing keel sloop and a 28' sloop with an inboard diesel engine and steering wheel. This mix of boats allows our members to enjoy a variety of types of sailing and gain experience on different sized boats.

But we’re as much about socializing and fun as we are about sailing.  In addition to the weekly sailing activities throughout the season and the monthly meetings, we have several fun theme parties off season.  And with the sizable fleet we have there is always boat maintenance to be done, which provides many opportunities for members to learn maintenance techniques while socializing with other members.

We also offer members opportunities to go as crew - or skippers and first mates, if qualified - on boats that we charter for cruising. We cruise both near (Newport RI, Chesapeake Bay) and far (Caribbean, San Juan Islands, New Zealand and Tahiti are all destinations we've been to).
