A Little History

The SOS Board of Directors established the Bareboat Cruising Committee (BCC) in October 2000 to provide opportunities for SOS members and guests to participate in bareboat charter cruises outside the Chesapeake Bay region. Since inception, the Bareboat Committee has sponsored over 25 trips ranging from Australia and Tonga in the Pacific, Italy and Turkey on the Mediterranean, the Caribbean Islands, and up the coast of Maine. There are usually two trips per year with 6 to 10 boats chartered for a given trip. The trips are offered for one week or longer options with some trips offering a choice of one or two week charters.
