Member Handbook & Concierge Fee/Deductible Waiver
Please review the Member Handbook before you head out on your first sail. In this handbook, we cover the ins and outs of being a member of the Club including reservation policies, cancellation policies, member programs, referral programs, No-Go-Zones, in-depth Deductible Waiver information and much, much more. It is important to know this information to ensure you’re staying safe while out on the water.2023 Member Handbook (updated 1.01.2023) Concierge Fee/Deductible Waiver
Skipper Responsibilities & Usage Reports (Boat Reservations)
Before heading out on your first sail with the Club, prepare yourself by reviewing our Club Skipper/Member Responsibilities Checklist. Members are expected to follow the checklist items on every day sail and overnight charter.
BoatUS / Towing Membership Information
It is highly suggested by the Club for members to invest in a membership with BoatUS Towing. Having a membership with BoatUS will give you peace of mind when you’re out on the water. Towing can cost thousands and having a membership with BoatUS reduces the cost exponentially. The Club does not have a towing service available and once you leave the dock, you are the responsible skipper on board. Stay safe and prepared with a BoatUS membership.
