Needs a location
Our annual fees are $75, due each April 1st. The fees are used by our 501-c-3 non-profit club to fix boats that are donated to us, which we resell cheaply to encourage small sailboat sailing. Dues are also used to maintain our committee boat from which we conduct races. Finally, fees are used to support our Educational development efforts -- with our Introduction to Sailing classes.
Each meetup explains if the you need to be a paid member or not and any additional costs associated with them, if any. We are completely a non-profit organization, with no salaries, and no hidden connections to profit-oriented sailing companies, etc.
