Membership Categories

NSC offers a number of flexible memberships for all ages to enjoy boating and the benefits of club lifestyle.

Don’t Have A Boat? See our guide on how a NSC membership can help you participate and get on the water. There’s a reason we lead most clubs with more active sailors and boaters on the water each season!
