Join the DSSA!

Members of the DSSA have access to a wide range of programs and services, including our sailing lessons and clinics for youth and adults, access to our Day Sailer fleet July-September during our open sailing hours, and (for experienced sailors) the opportunity to reserve one of our cruise boats for a half-day or day of sailing on the bay or near shore on Lake Superior. We seek to make membership affordable, and scholarship assistance is available for members who cannot pay the full fee.

Why Membership

We require all individuals who take lessons or go sailing through the DSSA to first become members. This is necessary for insurance purposes, and to help fund our many programs!

To become a member of the DSSA for the current summer season, you must pay a fee and commit to a given number of volunteer hours with the DSSA.

About Volunteering
