Secondly, What is SAMM all about?
SAMM is formally registered as a Sports & Cultural Association with the Region of Murcia – see the Autonomous Region Government website by clicking on the logo;
This is in Spanish.
SAMM comprises a number of constitutionally organised Groups that cater for different classes of sailing boats and boating activities. There are Groups for larger cruising yachts, dinghy sailors, boat-share Groups, one metre remote control boats, a catamaran and a new Motorboat Group. and brief details of these Groups can be found here.
Motor Boat enthusiasts can become involved with our Artaban (“Fefi”) motorboat and our Support Boat, a RIB with 45 HP outboard – and provided you have an appropriate Spanish Titulo qualification or ICC equivalent to meet the competence requirements of the Group – you can join the “MoBo Group”. This Group has Members who help with providing support on our race days in Spring and Autumn.
The Balaton Sailing and Social Group has three day boats, 18 ft / 5.5 M. One is a Balaton 18 (our first boat hence the group name) the other two are Sailfish 18’s. These are kept on swing moorings at Los Alcazares. You can join the “Balaton Sailing Group” with a view to becoming a “skip” or to continue as crew with opportunities to helm on social sails.

Social events are also organised by a small committee for members, partners and guests, and all are welcome. Examples are Cycle tours, bowling competitions, meals out, walks and more. Trips are also available to local places of interest which are all advertised in the Events menu.
SAMM welcomes new members, both Spanish residents and local holiday home owners, of all nationalities. If you are interested in Sailing or using Motor boats in this area come to one of our monthly meetings and learn more. You will be made very welcome.
