The Downtown Sailing Center (DSC) is the place to enjoy sailing and meet people who love to sail without the expense of owning a boat. Members hail from many backgrounds; The DSC focuses on making sailing fully inclusive and diverse. Memberships are inexpensive because of members contribute through sweat equity and community engagement.
All members, regardless of creed, background, ability, or membership level are equally important to the health of our organization. The price increases for "Skipper" and "Crew" as we move into summer; the price is cheap in the winter because our members freshen up the boats each spring.
If you would like to find out more about what we do or try before you buy, go for a short sail during our Open Houses. Experience sailing with us! Due to high demand, registration is required.
We need volunteer skippers and crew to take people sailing! If you are a DSC member, just click on an Open House event above to register as a skipper or crew (choose Registration Type of Crew or Skipper). If you volunteer, please be at the DSC one hour before the event starts to rig your boat.
