Enjoy sailing without boat ownership 'Shark Program':
The program affords associate club members the opportunity to access a mid-sized keelboat that can be taken for relaxing day cruises exploring the bay. Alternatively, try your hand at club racing and other club activities. Sailing and boat maintenance is learned by hands-on participation under the guidance of experienced sailors. This becomes a natural stepping-stone between dinghies and larger keelboats
