Joining Full Members (Boat Owners):

For members looking to add a boat to the club fleet (incl. purchase of a current NSC boat) and obtain a slip assignment, you will also need to submit a Mooring Request with the office. The Membership Coordinator will assist you and provide an estimate of the mooring fees to be paid. See New Boats for more information.

Contact Jamiie at to inquire about slip availability this season.

For new full members, we also offer a mentor support program of experienced NSC boat owners to help welcome you aboard and better navigate the Club and understand the services and facilities available for boat owners.
