Capital Assessment

In addition to the above membership dues, each member will contribute towards updating our aging fleet.  This amount ($100 for skippers, $75 for crew and junior skippers) will appear as a separate line item on your membership invoice.  Click Here for more information about the assessment and fleet replacement project.

Crew Member

Crew members can join the regular Member Sails on Wednesdays and Sundays, sail on a J/22 or Sonar with a DSC Skipper, and participate in various other events throughout the year.  Crew members are also eligible to be checked out for Kayak and Hansa Access Dinghy use (email the office for more info).  No experience is necessary, but taking lessons is a great way to establish a base-line knowledge and get the most out of your membership.

Skipper Member

Skippers can take out any DSC J/22, Sonar, or Freedom, as well as the Hansa Access Dinghy and Kayak.  Skippers will need to pass an on-water checkout to demonstrate basic skills and competence before they are able to use any vessel.  In addition to the Member Sails, skippers can reserve boats for private use nearly year-round.  Details on the checkout-process here.  Skippers aged 26 and under may join at a reduced rate.

Racing and Cruising Upgrades

Members can pay an additional upgrade fee to be involved in the Racing and Cruising Education programs.  The Racing program consists of the Thursday Night Racing series on J/22s, and the Cruising Education Program includes use of the DSC's various cruising boats.  These programs may have additional volunteer expectations above and beyond regular DSC community events and fleet maintenance.  See the respective pages for more information.
