We welcome anyone with the love of sailing, regardless of boat ownership, to become a part of our community. In joining our community, we expect you to be an active sailor and to contribute to well-being of our club. In an effort to maintain a high level of participation in our club's membership, we prefer candidates to own or have direct access to a boat in one of our many fleets. We prefer our candidates to be invested in the well-being of our club. We are one of the most affordable clubs on the Bay because of the dedication of our members to club, whether it is through volunteering for leadership position or completing works, members must be willing to pitch in.
