Minneapolis Sailing Center Membership

Families can purchase annual memberships to the sailing center which gives them access to the sailboats for use during open hours and significant discounts on classes. A family membership allows all family members to take out boats individually, so for families with younger children, an individual membership may still be the best choice. This is an affordable alternative to buying a boat.
