Join Us - Have Fun - Do Good

As a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the LWSA relies on support from members, donors and volunteers to run our programs.

Your tax-deductible membership donation helps the LWSA's Sailing School, which teaches hundreds of children 8 to 16 to sail each year.

Becoming a member of LWSA is a great way to show your support for the good work that we do.  Members get involved in LWSA to the extent that they desire, from support to good governance to volunteering keeping the sailing center ship-shape.  

Membership Choices
Memberships are for the calendar year.  Payments received after September 1 will apply through the following calendar year.

Can I pay by credit card ?

Why not earn some points or miles ?  You may use Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or PayPal.
