Fun – Sailing by yourself is nice, sailing in a group with and against other boats is fun. You may be very competitive and relish a good race. Or you may simply want to participate and see how you are going. Either way you are part of a group of like minded sailors.
Knowledge – Our members have got decades of experience – it’s obvious, just don’t tell them! Whether you are new to the sport or an old salt, nothing beats a chat about boats, tactics, and the latest race or cruise. Our members are more than happy to chat and liberally dispense advice.
Storage – Space permitting, we can store your boat in our sheds directly by the water. Our low rates are exclusive to members.
Safety – Before each event our race officers monitor the weather conditions and assess whether sailors are safe. The club provides support boats and communication when you are out there. You are not alone. We are there to help you if you’ve got a problem, we can take you and your boat ashore. We carry radios and can request external assistance.
