Learn boat care and maintenance
A key part of the program is instruction in boat care and annual maintenance which provides program members with a solid understanding of the commitment involved in boat ownership. Under the guidance and direction of Club Maintenance Mentors, program members learn how to properly maintain and care for a sailboat. Members are responsible for commissioning the boat at the beginning of the season and decommissioning the boat at the end of the season. This can be a valuable experience if you are considering boat ownership in the future. All program members are required to complete a minimum of 10 hours of maintenance work a year including work during the Club’s launch and haul-out weekends.
