“There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply as messing about in boats” – Kenneth Grahame
Old Salts Sailing Society Charter
Article 1 – Who Are We?
The Old Salts Sailing Society is a place where sailors can come together to celebrate the joy of messing around on the water. Our mission is to provide a social and fun venue for all the members of LMSA.
Article 2 – Membership
Any LMSA family member of dubious moral character interested in sailing or the lore of the sea, and silly enough to want to be a member. All you need is a desire to spend time on the water and enjoy the company of like-minded sailors. If you are interested or desire more information, email Captain Morgan at email@example.com.
Article 3 – Benefits of Membership
The first benefit should be obvious; you belong to one of the most elite and respected society of its kind. Second, you will be put on the most selective e-mail list. Only a very few will have access to our e-mail publications. You will learn the secret hand shake. Last but not least, you will have the honor (that very few have) to purchase and wear a Old Salt Sailing Society T-shirt. Thus you will truly stand out as the creme de la creme of the sailing world
