Join Our Sailing Club
The Columbus Sailing Club has two membership options: Sailor or Kayaker.
Both memberships are for an individual joining the club. There is a separate fee for the craft and/or trailer. Separate fees for each craft provide simplicity in pricing your membership. Separate fees for the craft adds flexibility for sailors who owns two sailboats and one trailer, or a kayaker who owns a kayak and a canoe etc. Trailers may be kept on the property year round. We have pricing examples in the FAQ's below.
Simply put, buy the appropriate membership, add as many craft as needed, that's your total.
How much to join the Sailing Club?

Can I learn to sail at the Sailing Club?
Currently due to COVID-19, we are not able to provide sailing lessons. We are a volunteer club and we are not willing to place our members at risk.
Can I store my sails and sailing items at the Sailing Club?
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?
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.
Can I Windsurf... at the Sailing Club?
YES. We are a sailing club that allows our members to windsurf at the Club. Join as an KAYAKER Member. Our goal is for you to get out on the lake, possess the tools to be a safe, responsible boater and be a steward of Hoover Reservoir. We advise taking water safety lessons from the Columbus Park System and Windsurfing lessons from a sanctioning body. Contact us for details.
Can I rent a Sailboat, Kayak or Windsurfer... at your Sailing Club?
We do not provide, rent or lease equipment to members or non-members.
Can I bring my friends with me... at the Sailing Club?
As a Member, you are encouraged to bring your friends and family with you to enjoy the Sailing Club. Recognize that the membership is for you, so your friends can only be at the Sailing Club when you are present.
Can I picnic on the Club grounds... at the Sailing Club?
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.
