Better Than Owning Your Own Boat — JUST THINK
- No boat to buy / No loan payments
- No boat maintenance headaches
- No dockage fees / No winter boat storage fees
- No fuel expenses
- No trouble finding experienced people to sail with
True North Sailing Club Members who have previously owned their own boats tell us that they sail much more now as a club member than they ever did as a private boat owner while saving thousands of dollars per year. Compared to owning a boat, True North Sailing Club Membership is extremely affordable. Sailing Club annual dues is approximately 1/3rd the cost of what you would pay just to dock your own boat for a season.
Enjoy Unlimited Sailing
Full Six Month Sailing Season
During the Off Season we offer Caribbean Cruises, ski trips, educational seminars and other social events. As a member you will build new friendships and have unlimited fun.
Great Sailing Area
Those who are new to the sport of sailing start by registering for the Basic Sailing Course at the True North Sailing School. After completing the Basic Course and receiving certification you can then become a True North Sailing Club Member. If you join the club within 2 weeks of Basic Course Graduation you receive a $100 discount on your first year’s dues. All members must be at least 18 years of age.
Levels of Membership
Crew Members are beginner & intermediate sailors who have completed The Basic Sailing Course and hold Basic Sailing Certification at a minimum. Whenever club boats sail all members on board (both skippers and crew) share the driving time. This policy gives crew members the opportunity to perfect their driving skills so they can eventually become skippers themselves.
Unlike other sailing clubs, at True North there is no price difference between skipper and crew memberships. Your level of membership is a matter of sailing experience and qualifications.
No Initiation Fee – At True North we have no initiation fees like other clubs where you get "locked in" by paying a hefty nonrefundable upfront charge.
Experienced but uncertified sailors pay dues as listed above plus $150 for an A.S.A. onboard "Checkout" and written Certification Exam.
Dues are prorated for members who join after the start of the sailing season (in their second season) so you will not pay for any unused sailing time.
Senior Discount – Sailors over 60 years of age save $200.
Graduate Discount – True North Sailing School Basic Sailing Course graduates receive a $100 discount on their first years Basic Membership dues provided they join the club within two weeks of completing the course.
