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 storage only is currently available.  We are pleased to offer heated indoor storage in the winter!

For all outside storage, boats may be stored on racks, trailers or tires in the boat yard.

For 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 60-70 degrees.  No need to winterize or cover your boat!  Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for the winter storage season to see which option is right for you.


All space is first come first served and priority is given to returning storage customers.  For all registration, please complete and submit the
