Located on the beautiful intracoastal, the Clearwater Community Sailing Center is the home to the Carlisle Room and Veranda. With breath taking views of Clearwater Bay, the Carlisle Room and Veranda is an ideal location to leave your guests impressed with your special occasion. The venue accommodates 120 guests in an intimate, but open floor plan setting. Our room is a blank canvas for you to create the event of your dreams.

When you rent our venue the banquet rooms are available to you that day from 12pm-12am. That time needs to include your decorating, your event, and your clean up, We do use preferred catering, so we ask that you choose from a list of five approved vendors. If you go outside that list, or choose to bring your own food there will be a $200.00 fee.

To reserve the date a non-refundable booking fee of 30% of the final total is necessary.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or would like to schedule an appointment to view the room. Read less

I picked the Clearwater Community Sailing Center as my reception venue due to the fact for the value and excellent location. However this venue turned out to be a complete nightmare. Staff is not friendly and lack communication skills. This venue made planning my wedding way more difficult then it should have been. Save yourself the trouble and pay a little bit extra to go elsewhere.

Clearwater Community Sailing Center responded with the following comments:

Good Morning,

We apologize that your special day did not go as planned. Being a non profit only lends us to rent out the banquet space and not provide a wedding planner for events. On our website we offer options for wedding coordinators for this reason.

It's unfortunate that our refrigerator went down, but we contacted you immediately and resolved the issue with the Sheraton Sand Key Resort happily storing your wedding cakes for you. They were also kind enough to deliver them.

I understand that weddings can be stressful to plan especially when a curve ball is thrown at the last minute, but we did everything we could to remedy the situation as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

We appreciate your input and will work to have back up plans on hand in the future. We hope the rest of your event went smoothly.

Originally we planned a beach wedding, but it was supposed to rain. The Clearwater Community Sailing Center worked with us on very short notice and was very affordable. We only had our ceremony there, but it was perfect and the view was amazing!! We had the ceremony in the Veranda area so we got to enjoy the view of the bay and get all the beach pics we wanted without worrying about the rain!

This venue is perfect for smaller weddings. We had about 75 guests and we all had plenty of room to dance and enjoy the incredible views this place offers. We got married on the deck, had dinner in the interior room and then danced on the deck which had been cleared of the chairs.
They recently made some upgrades which we found helpful (added blinds) and all of the employees were very friendly and helpful!

I loved having our wedding here! Not only was it very affordable, it was beautiful as well! The pictures on their website just don't do it enough justice! I suggest visiting in person to see just how big and beautiful the space is! Everyone there was so friendly, and did all that they could to help. They also provide tables and chairs, which makes things a whole lot easier!

The Sailing Center is a perfect location,especially since we were married on Sand Key Beach. The place could use a good cleaning and some upkeep. Some of the clear curtains that we had to pull down(windy) didn't come down completely causing a draft. The price was good but they could use a higher level of service by having a mini-coordinator to call and help.

We had a sunset ceremony at Sand Key Park then an evening cocktail hour with music on the outside Verandah and then dinner and dancing inside in the Carlise Room. The view over the water is beautiful. We had a weekday wedding which made the venue very affordable, however be prepared to decorate (a lot). The Carlise room itself is very plain and unremarkable without the water view that you would have during the day. Uplighting or other outside vendor lighting is a necessity as the lights are bright florescents with no ability to dim them.

The staff was great. I arrived at the venue after they had the tables and dance floor set up and wanted changes made at the last minute. They were very good about making the changes and they let the person setting up the cake in early to set up the cake. We prepared our own food for the cocktail hour and were able to bring in our own alcohol and then just hired a bartender and additional staff from the company that catered the dinner to assist which was great. I would absolutely recommend this venue.

I had my wedding reception there and it was perfect. It was windy so we had to put the shades down but it still turned out great! It did take a few days to get emails back from them, I ended up calling them instead.
