We are excited to be able to offer the use of club boats to our members. The goal is to afford all members the opportunity to expand their access to sailing. Use of club boats requires we conduct ourselves according to the rules and regulations of the club, Jackson County, the State of Missouri and the US Coast Guard when on the water. A BoatShare membership has all the rights and privileges of a racing membership.
Membership cost is $300.
Students (current) can upgrade to BoatShare for $100
If you would like to become a BoatShare or BoatShare+ Member, please contact us at BoatShare@jacomosailingclub.org
. We'll coordinate with you to schedule a checkout sail
, where you learn the gate codes and a brief on the boats.
MAKE A RESERVATION
The boat must
be reserved. Reservations are first come/first serve. Skippers participating in the Sunday racing series will be given priority during those times.
Once you are a BoatShare member you can reserve boats online after signing into the members only portion of this site.
Any individuals under the age of 18 must be supervised by a parent or other responsible adult.
The club sailboats are not equipped for night sailing and must be returned to the trailer by sunset.
Jacomo Sailing Club's insurance covers liability on the boats and we encourage family participation. Our insurance coverage does not allow any intoxicating substances on club boats, sail or power.
As a volunteer organization we can only accomplish as much as our members can volunteer. We encourage everyone to be active, to help in the parts of the club that excite them, and to participate at a level that works for your situation. In some cases you may be able to help a great deal, and at other times you may just be able to encourage others. We can guarantee this, that the more you are involved the more you will get out of the club.
BoatShare works for everyone if you leave the equipment better than you found it!
