DRY SAIL & STUDENT DISCOUNT:  We encourage students use their own boats in paid lessons.  We are pleased to offer a Summer 2020 Dry Sail discount of $50 per session, per boat irregardless of how many family members use it.  There is a limit of $100 per boat, the boat must be the same boat used in lessons.  Boats in dry sail used in Family Sail are not eligible and are excluded, as Family Sail is free.  Once registration for membership and class is submitted, you'll be emailed a discount code for your dry sail registration.  You will have until the day before your session begins to pay dry sail in full.  Dry Sail in short is yard storage for member boats.
