Subscription has its privileges
Subscription, the worry-free sailing solution!
In the not-too-distant past, owning a sailboat was seen as a status symbol. If you could afford a yacht, the reasoning went, then you were doing well—and everyone could see it.
Today, however, the needle has shifted. People still want to own a sailboat, but they aren’t so concerned about owning them, per se, and aren’t as interested in filling their lives with physical goods anymore. They don’t want to deal with upfront costs and credit requirements, the hassles of maintenance, and the frustration of obsolescence.
There is an easier way to live the nautical LIFESTYLE and have a similar or even better outcome?
This shift in consumers' behavior has come about in part thanks to a new economic reality that things once obtainable only by ownership can now be subscribed to, shared, or rented, with a huge economic advantage.
The driving Change
There are 5 main factors driving the rise of the subscription economy.
Own less stuff.
A person’s status is no longer defined by what they own.
Subscriptions remove the burden of ownership.
The real-time that a product/service is used does not justify ownership.
New products and services available through a subscription that were not available before

How does Sailing work?
Book your preferred sail by picking up an available sailing slot from the booking calendar online.
You might find that other members already have booked the same slot you wish, so crew-up with them to sail (6 members max - per sail). If the slot you wish for has no other bookings yet, be the first to start one. They will show up!
You are now aboard a brand new LIFESTYLE, sailing with members that might have different skills and sailing experience, but are equal on board and share nothing but full camaraderie and friendship with an understanding that all crew rotates positions, performing duties randomly as needed, and cooperating abord with whatever task is needed. FUN is your ultimate goal.
4 AFTER SAIL PARTY
Be prepared, as is a common procedure that after docking the yachts safely back at port to throw below deck dining or wine sailing parties to enhance and forge new connections to create memories for the times to come.
WORTH to mention, our community not only sails to have FUN, they also have FUN on land, so be aware that sometimes #5 is performed as often as sailing. Sunset Dock-tails, wine-sailing, and Door-Dash parties while docked are more common than you might think!
