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.
Memberships are for the calendar year. Payments received after September 1 will apply through the following calendar year.
As a new member or annually renewing member, you'll also receive a token of our appreciation:
Boatswain members receive an LWSA Hat
Skipper members an LWSA Hat and Tote Bag
Navigator members will receive an LWSA Hat, Tote Bag, and Shirt
