S.O.S.A. Membership Benefits
As members you will have full use of our clubhouse with kitchen, washrooms, sitting area and outdoor shower. We have a barbecue for your use, picnic tables, fire pit, and volleyball court.
We have a great swimming area, dock and launching area for your dinghy. We offer boat storage on the beach or in a locked compound. We have locked storage sheds with lockers for your sailing equipment. See membership application for costs.
A calendar of social events is planned each summer so you can get involved and meet other sailors and families. We have a Family Fun Regatta in August and everyone is welcome to participate.
A members discount is given for sailing lessons. Sunday afternoons offer a session of sailing with club boats for those either taking lessons or having a degree of sailing experience. There is a small fee for this.
Members are expected to volunteer 8 hours of service to the club annually. Clean up opportunities are offered throughout the year or members can find their own ways to volunteer - cleaning up around the grounds and clubhouse as they see needed and then recording their hours.
Detailed membership pricing available on Membership form.
"A Membership for a family living at the same address, including dependent children - university students: $200 membership and $150 refundable deposit. ( Do 8 hours of volunteer work and get your money back)
Please note that Membership does not immediately entitle you to boat storage. There may be a waiting list for space. Please contact SOSA to see if there is a space for your boat. Boats are not to be delivered to SOSA without first ensuring space. Boat purchase from another member does not include the boat space. We want to encourage active, sailing members at SOSA, and boats must be in safe, sailable condition to be considered for storage.
Boat Storage Fees - varies by size of boat - approx $2 per square foot - e.g.. Laser $126, Wayfarer $192, Hobie 18 $288, Kayak $75. Please check membership application for boat fees, and if not listed, please contact SOSA for pricing.
Locker Storage (if available)- small locker - $35 large locker $50
If you don't have a boat but would like to be a member - consider joining our Boat Share program. we have Lasers, Invitation, Hobie 16, Kayaks, SUP, and a rowing shell. Sailboats and Rowboat require a certain level of skill. please contact SOSA regarding the Boat Share Program. $75 to join.
SOSA is great! I benefit so much from my membership, both in sailing and socially.
