The Moraine Sailing Club Community Sailing Program (CSP) is designed to help people economically enjoy sailing and sailboat racing at Lake Arthur by providing access to club-maintained sailboats.
As a member of a community sailing program, you share the use of community boats with other community sailing program members.

We have a web-based boat reservation system for qualified MSC Community Sailing members. To access it, select "Member Login" in the header of any page. After logging in, select "MSC Boat Reservation System". In the calendar that comes up, click on the desired date, and select "Add New Schedule" on the subsequent menu. Only the type of boat for which you are qualified will appear.
We ask new Club members to join the Club at the Basic membership level and upgrade to CSP upon being quallified to use the boats. Qualifications include demonstrating the 19 skills of US Sailing along with demonstrating specific rigging and de-rigging procedures for the class of boat. If you do not know how to sail (or need a refresher), your membership in the Club as a Basic member allows you to participate in our learn-to-sail program. See the "New Sailors" section of our Website for more information.
A set of program rules have been developed to cover things like initial qualification, use of safety equipment, and taking guests out:
The program registration process includes an orientation to the program rules and equipment. Please refer to the Membership Application for information about fees.
