Sailing Club Membership

Our Sailing Club membership concept is based on offering graduates of US Sailing’s Basic Keelboat certification affordable access to sailboats after they have become certified. This is a critical time, because if one doesn’t continue to sail, much will soon be forgotten. Crews are sometimes hard to find, but not for our Sailing Club members! This is an opportunity to keep sailing with other club members and add to social life. Practice makes prefect, even if you don’t reach the highest level! The Keelboat Certification course is for beginners and novices where no prior sailing skills are required. The course is usually somewhere between 25-30 hours long. Now, that’s a long way from the 10,000 hours it takes to reach excellence. 

 


 

Club memberships are personal, but each member is allowed to bring one guest, 8 times per year.  Each additional guest is $50 per sail. 

Book your sail in advance.  Each sail is three hours long and there are three (3) time slots per sailing day -- Morning, mid-day and afternoon.

Club members have priority over non-member guests.

All of our boats may not be available all of the time, as other programming may take priority over the Club membership sailing.  It is, however, our intention to make one to two boats available at all times, and as our club grows, more boats will be made available.

Boat types currently available:  Sonar, J-24 and RS Venture.

Hang out at the Clubhouse before and after your sail!  Although alcohol is not permitted onboard our boats, feel free to bring your favorite beverage and/or snacks to enjoy after your sailing excursion. Other restrictions may apply.

Policies

Members of our Club sail Biscayne Bay in our Sonar, J-24 and RS Venture boats. You are eligible to participate if you hold US Sailing's Keelboat Certification, or a guest of a member. The limits for sailing are up to 10MPH, 15MPH, or 20MPH wind. Your skills and abilities to control the boat in a variety of conditions determins what wind range you are permitted to sail in.  We do not rent boats when wind is stronger than 20MPH, but will allow access to boats for those with the skill and experience to safely handle the conditions. Club membership in Team Paradise is required.

Boats may not always be available, but we make all efforts to accommodate your needs. Certifications for charters are issued on an individual basis, and we reserve all rights to refuse certification due to lack of skill and seamanship. $500 refundable damage deposits are required for all charters.

The refundable damage deposit will be returned once the vessel has been returned to port and properly inspected, no later than two business days after the rental is completed. Normal wear and tear is no reason to deduct from the Damage Deposit, but neglect or ignorance of seamanship may be. Boats should be returned in the same shape as when they left the dock. Any collision occurring while racing must result in a protest, filed by the skipper of the Team Paradise vessel to the Race Committee, within the protest time limit.
