New Membership Application
We are thrilled that you are interested in joining our CSC community! To apply for membership in CSC, go HERE. This link will take you to Wild Apricot, which is our membership management system.
Please read the General Membership Information before completing an application.
The club has three levels of annually renewable membership:
- Regular membership is for boat owners and persons owning davits, leasing board boat pads or mooring a boat.
- Associate membership is available to persons interested in sailing. Associate members are often crew for regular members and do not own a boat. Associate members may skipper a boat owned by a regular member. Associate members may not own a davit, lease a board boat pad or use the facilities to access a moored boat.
- Provisional Membership is available to anyone who expresses an interest in sailing. Provisional membership shall be an individual adult membership. Provisional membership shall last no longer than six months, at which time the member shall be asked to move to associate’s membership, regular membership, or discontinue membership. An individual may only join as a Provisional member once. Provisional members shall be billed monthly at a rate determined by the board. At the end of six months the fees paid may be applied towards the new membership fees. Provisional members may participate in adult lessons and social events at CSC. Provisional members may not receive a gate code, reserve the clubhouse, or drive a safety boat. Ownership or leasing of club davits or board boat pads and club voting privileges are also not allowed. If a payment is missed the provisional member is immediately expelled. Initiation fees, special assessments and annual payments for capital improvements as defined in Article III, Sections 1,3, and 4 shall not be required for provisional members.
- Student membership is available to students interested in sailing and who are attending an accredited college or university on a full time basis who wish to participate in club activities and rent a davit, lease a board boat pad or moor a boat.
You must be sponsored by two current regular members of the club. If you are interested in becoming a member but do not have two people who are willing to be sponsors, you can visit the club to meet people who may be willing to become sponsors. The best times to do this are usually Sunday afternoons during the club races or during First Friday or other social events. Note that if you are purchasing a davit, the davit owner cannot be one of your sponsors.
