New Crew and Returning Crew

All new North Cove Sailing Club Members join at a Crew level which gives access to reserve a sailing session to sail as Crew with a Skipper Mentor Member.  New Crew Members maximize their sailing time by onboarding with Skipper Mentors who focus on the development of each new Crew Member’s sailing and boat handling skills as well as help integrate new members to the Club’s social activities. All Crew members are expected to have basic sailing and boat safety skills and be active participants in the operations of the vessel.

Returning Crew Members have the opportunity to remain as Crew Members always enhancing their skills on the water or by taking performance sailing courses. A Skipper Development program is available to any Crew Member who would like to start on the path to becoming a Skipper Member.  To recognize our loyal returning Crew Members, North Cove Sailing offers a discounted membership for those who have been a member of our Club for at least one year.

Skipper Mentor
Skipper Mentor Members are sailors who have demonstrated the ability and desire to lead sailing sessions through a culmination of practical sailing knowledge, experience on the water, and strong leadership skills. A Skipper Mentor is responsible for the safety of the Crew and sailing vessel at all times and is required to pass a Skipper Evaluation to ensure competency in all aspects of safe sailing.  Skipper Mentors agree to embrace a Leadership/Ambassador role supporting NCS emphasis on Safe Boating and Education with respect for all levels of sailing skills and development of all Club Members/guests on board.

Skipper Privilege
With this Membership, a Skipper may choose to pay a supplemental fee in addition to our base Skipper Mentor fee.  For that fee, Skipper Privilege Members are still encouraged yet will not be required to take other Club Members sailing for 40 Mentor hours.  Skipper Privilege members have the ability to privately invite other Club Members and guests aboard.  The guest policy and minimum Club Crew requirement apply to all Skipper Memberships.
