  • Members enjoy a set number of scheduled reservations, depending on your enrollment level.

+ How does the reservation system work?

To maintain availability for all members, you may make a specified number of Advanced Reservations. Once a reservation is used, a new one may be made. It is a rolling reservation system, where the minute you satisfy one of your reservations, you are free to make another. The earlier you reserve the more likely you are to get the booking you want. In addition to the specified number of Advanced Reservations, Members will be able to sign up for Space Available Reservations within 48 hours of an available time slot.

+ Is insurance included with membership?

Sail & Ski maintains insurance that covers all of our vessels as well as third party liability. Members are responsible for the damage they do to a boat, but generally members are only responsible for paying damage up to a specified deductible.

Sail & Ski provides “Flagship Towing” coverage for your peace of mind, 7 days a week.
