  • Supporting the SBJSA mission to provide access to the water and education, so that people of all ages and diverse backgrounds can experience boating and build their watercraft skills.

  • Ability to reserve the CH Stuart Foundation Building & Costich Pavilion for private social functions (check for availability; modest usage fees apply) or rent and erect a tent on SBJSA grounds for your function.  An SBJSA Facility Use Agreement must be submitted and approved.

  • Receive invitations to special events, programs, and regattas.

In order to utilize sailboats within our fleet, you must pass a simple qualification process to determine that you have adequate skills for that particular boat (ie – Laser, 420, Hobie catamaran, etc). If you don’t have enough skill or knowledge, you will be asked to take a 2 hour refresher/orientation course for that boat, or perhaps a longer and more comprehensive Learn-to-Sail course to help you with the fundamentals. See the on-duty Community Boating “Officer of the Day” (the CB-OOD) for details on how to become qualified for sailboat use once you become a member.
