The Club has sailboats available for members - from beginners to Canada Summer Games race boats. When compared with renting a sailboat for $50/hour or the cost of buying, storing, maintaining, and insuring a sailboat... The Club's Co-op Boat program is incredibly cost effective. This fee is discounted by 50% on September 1st annually.
As a Community Sailing Club, we have boats for members to sail. Annual Club Membership and the Co-op Boat Program Fee ($200 in 2019) provide a low-cost, low-commitment alternative to boat ownership. Come get your BTUs (boat time units) with the Club.
There are a limited number spaces in the Co-op Boat Program to ensure all users have good access to boats all season. Please read the Co-op Boat Usage Agreement / Release and Waiver before signing up.
Our Co-op Boats
SanJuan 21 (the Club owns 3 of these boats) - these keelboats are great for a family of up to six for an afternoon sail around the lake or racing with a crew of three or four. More about these boats on the fleet's website.
420 (the Club owns 9 of these boats) - These boats are excellent for all ages. For Youth, they fit into the Long Term Athlete Development Plan and are the transition boat from single-anded to double-handed sailing and particularly for youth wanting to advance to the 29er. For post-secondary students the 420 is the boat used at more than 200 universities in Canada and the USA for collegiate sailing programs. For adults these are great boats for two people to learn to sail / advance their sailing.
