The Community Sailing Center is home to sail and human-powered boats of all kinds and sizes. We are especially well suited to house your kayaks, canoes, rowing dinghies Lasers, Sunfish, and boats 12-24′ on trailers. Winter and summer storage is available.  For winter 2018 we are now pleased to offer heated indoor storage!

For summer and all outside storage, boats may be stored on racks, trailers or tires in the boat yard. Those who store their boats at the Community Sailing Center are given:

  • the combination to the boat yard gate locks which allows for 24 hour access to the boat yard (NOTE: Winter storage users do not receive the yard combo. Access is by appointment only.)
  • use of dollies for ease in launching
  • the option of purchasing a hoist pass for unlimited hoist usage

For our indoor winter storage you drop off your boat with us and we store it for you.  This offers an enclosed climate controlled environment maintained at 50-70 degrees.  No need to winterize or cover your boat!


All space is first come first served and priority is given to returning storage customers.  For all registration, please complete and submit the 2018 Boat Storage Registration Form and:
