Club Description: The Sailing Association Mar Menor (SAMM) was formed in January 2006 and its purpose is to provide a meeting point for sailors in the area, and try to help solve problems experienced in keeping and sailing boats in the Mar Menor and Mediterranean. Our membership has now passed 120 and we meet at CTD, a Spanish Sports College (see below), in Los Narejos, Los Alcázares, Murcia (turn at the new roundabout on the N332, with the large sail on it, monthly at 11am on the second Wednesday, except in August. To enter CTD, simply press the buzzer on the entry intercom and the gates will open for you. If queried at the Gate, just state 'SAMM'; and ensure you are wearing your Lanyard if a Member. Some SAMM Groups and individuals store boats in the CTD boatyard, on the jetty or on moorings offshore from CTD (CTD was previously known as CAR but was renamed in Nov 2013 to ;CTD Centro de Tecnificacion Deportiva”-Sport Technical Centre). Their website address remains unchanged at http://www.carmurcia.es SAMM is Registered under ;Registro General de Entrada’ (Ref.No. 8707), at Los Alcázares Ayuntamiento (Town Hall), which establishes us as an Association using the costal facilities with the knowledge of the Los Alcazares Town Council and Policia Local. The land from the CDT boundary to the tide mark is managed by the Town Council (L.A. Ayuntamiento) and the coastal demarcation lines are drawn by the central Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y de Medio Rural y Marino. The Coastal law is administered by Coastal Department (Demarcación de Costas) of the Region. More information about coastal law can be found at http://ukinspain.fco.gov.uk/en/ Non-members of all nationalities are welcome to attend our General Meetings to learn more about us and join if you wish. We often have a guest speaker of the month on different topics of interest to sailors. For Directions go to Google Maps and Search for ‘CAR, Los Narejos’. During 2007 we obtained formal registration as a Sports & Cultural Association with the Region of Murcia. SAMM comprises a number of Groups that own different classes of sail boats. There are Groups for larger cruising yachts, 18ft and 22ft ‘day sailers’, dinghies, International One Metre (remote control boats), a catamaran and a motorboat group. SAMM also has an active Social Calendar and Race Programme, and welcomes non-members. The SAMM Race Committee organise a Spring and Autumn Series of race days for all comers under the PY Handicap system and the ISAF Rules with some local variations. Our Support Boat is a RIB with 40HP outboard and we are always looking for volunteer helms on race days. The basic Spanish Titulo or an ICC are the required qualifications to helm the RIB. Social events and trips to places of interest are also organised for members, partners and guests, and all are welcome. These are all advertised in the Events menu of this web site. SAMM welcomes new members, both Spanish residents and local holiday home owners, of all nationalities. If you are interested in Sailing or Motor boats in this area come to one of our monthly meetings and learn more. You will be made very welcome.
