Community Sailing Program (CSP)

The Moraine Sailing Club CSP provides an opportunity for members to sail and race on Lake Arthur without having to own a sailboat.  The CSP enables access to club-owned sailboats through an on-line reservation system.  Members share the use of the boats and help maintain the boats and equipment. Since it is an all volunteer club, CSP members are asked to participate in community work days which are organized by the CSP director.  This keeps the boats in good working  condition throughout the season. 

CSP Members

To reserve boats, review the CSP club rules, view videos and review rigging instructions go to the CSP Member page.
