The Rome Sailing Club began in 1955 with only five sailors at Garden Lakes in Rome, Georgia. The club has grown to over 75 family memberships on Lake Weiss near Leesburg, Alabama - less than an hours drive from downtown Rome.
About half of the club members still reside in Rome, the remaining number come from as far away as Atlanta, Birmingham and Chattanooga. Ages range from teenagers on up. The club does not lack in diversity, there are many unique and talented individuals who have lived and traveled to many places.
Each member brings something special to the club to share, we all benefit from each other.
