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.

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


Space is first come first served. If you would like to apply for a ground or rack space, please submit a Storage Registration form and a Payment and Agreement form, along with payment to:
