Join Our Sailing Club

The Columbus Sailing Club has three membership options. We are an active sailing club. We encourage our members to take full advantage of the natural beauty of Hoover Reservoir and Hoover Park administered by the Columbus Parks and Recreations.

An Associate membership offers an opportunity to get on Hoover Reservoir without owning a sailboat, learn about sailing and crew with Club members. Areas of the north end of Hoover Reservoir are a wetland and bird sanctuary, with a diverse bird population. Unfortunately, the north end of Hoover Reservoir is not accessible via a tall masted catamaran sailboat, so some of our members use their smaller masted monohulls, Kayaks or Windsurfers to explore the northern shores.

Frequent Questions

  • Can I learn to sail at the Sailing Club?

    YES. As a Member, you receive sailing lessons to learn water safety and sailing basics. Our goal is to have you possess the tools to be a safe, responsible boater and a steward of Hoover Reservoir. Contact us for details.

  • Can I store my sails and sailing items at the Sailing Club?

    YES. We offer storage for sails, sailing tackle, and sailing related items for the sailing season.

  • Can I store my sail boat... and not become a member?

    NO. We are not a boat storage facility, so we do not offer boat storage. By becoming a member you enjoy all the advantages of belonging to a Sailing Club. Boats on our property must be kept in sailing condition.

  • Can I picnic on the Club grounds... at the Sailing Club?

    YES. As a Member, you are encouraged to use the Club grounds. Our Sailing Club is a "rustic" facility. While we do not offer electricity, we do offer a BBQ gas grill and picnic tables. Our South Beach area is for quiet time by the lake. Situated in a sheltered small bay at the south of the club, it is the ideal spot to settle in for a quiet day of reading or spending time with family.
