VSS is a sailing social club. We offer a varied program of local cruising, social events and racing in and around the Gulf of Mexcio.

Membership is open to all sailors and  those interested in becoming sailors. Additionally, boat ownership  is not a prerequisite for membership into the Venice Sailing Squadron (VSS). There  are plenty of opportunities to join a sailing crew and get out on the water even if you don't have your own boat.

Annual dues are $70.00.  Club member benefits include organized cruising, racing, potluck dinners, newsletters, web site communications, various parties and club/inter-club activities.  Some of the social activities such as the "Steak and Sail" in October, and our Change of Watch (COW) Dinner on Memorial Day weekend in May are provided at very little additional cost above the $70 annual family dues.


    Pay the Dues

    The VSS membership dues can now be paid directly online through PayPal.
