Membership Info & Pricing

HOW IT WORKS:

Choose a location that you intend to sail the most out of – this will be your “home port.”  You can add additional ports (Click the word “Membership” on the menu above for club locations!) for a one time fee per location (this fee includes a four hour chart briefing, location orientation, and on-water training session)!

Clients new to our program must have ASA or US Sailing Certification, will need to pass a skill assessment, and complete a boat orientation/club policy/training session for EACH location that they wish to sail out of.

Returning members may be required to pay a discounted orientation/re-training fee each year to start the season right, IF they did not get out on the water enough the prior year.

Our sailing club provides members with guaranteed sailing time each month aboard the highest quality sailing club boats in the area. Anyone with ASA or US Sailing Basic Keelboat certification can join. Higher levels of certification expand your sailing range and/or provide larger boat membership access.

Membership is good for one year from the date of registration, and is for our sailing season which runs May 1 through October 1 each year.  In certain instances, we can pro-rate until the end of a particular season, but this is more expensive per month.  Discounts and promotions over 10% are only good when members pay in full by cash or check.

When you join, you split the cost of boating with up to six other members; leaving all of the planning and maintenance worries to us. This enables you to sail a boat that could be more expensive than you might want to own alone, AND allows you to focus your limited free time on what is fun – sailing. Members can invite friends and family along!
