About Us....

PGSC was started in the early 1970s by a group of sailors interested in racing their sailboats. In 1974, our first commodore was elected and the club was formalized. An active cruising schedule was added in 2000. We officially incorporated in October 1975.

History....

The Conquistador Cup Regatta held in early March since 1993. For many years, it was run by past-commodore Dave Hanson and sponsored by the Royal Order of Ponce Leon Conquistadors. In 2006, Dave turned over this event to PGSC. It is a full weekend of sailing & fun. Saturday’s events consist of two races followed by a dinner. On Sunday, the sailors compete for the Conquistador Cup.

THE "PARADE OF SAIL"

Part of last years Regatta was a non-competitive, FUN event for all non-racing boats. The vision of the founders of the Conquistador Cup Regatta was to see a 100 boats sailing on Charlotte Harbor.
