WRSC members may elect to participate in the Club’s Shared Boat Program (SBP). This program enables members to use one or more one-design sailboats and to go sailing without having to own a boat or park a boat at the club. At present the following classes of boats are available for use through the Shared Boat Program: Flying Scots, Albacores and Lasers.
WRSC is one of the most affordable sailing clubs in the area and the “provisional” membership makes it very affordable to try sailing for a season while you meet new friends and explore whether sailing is right for you and your family. Sailing on the Chesapeake with the WRSC SBP is a low-cost way to learn to sail and have fun throughout the summer.
Use of the SBP boats requires membership to WRSC and a small annual fee of $180* to cover maintenance and storage expenses of the fleet boats. Participation is limited to five shares per available boat to enable maximum fun and use for all. Members can elect to participate in one, two, or three classes of boats.
Shared boat members include approved graduates of the WRSC Learn to Sail and Learn to Race classes, experienced sailors wanting to get back into sailing/racing, and sailors wanting to try our versatile boat for fun sailing, good racing and the added bonus of a great social group.
