LNCS offers year round access to Lake Norman without the hassle of renting equipment each time you want to go out on the lake. Our equipment is available seven days a week, sunrise to sunset for our members. 

Membership Privileges Include:

  • Access to our fleet of sailboats:  Flying Scots, Sunfish and a Hunter 25.5
  • Access to our Stand Up Paddleboards (SUPs)
  • Access to our kayaks
  • Participation in all regularly scheduled Social Sails and special events
  • Open Sailing (sailing on your own outside of Social Sails) once you are skipper qualified
  • Access to equipment seven days a week, sunrise to sunset

Here's how it works:

  1. Purchase a membership online, by phone or in person and immediately begin using the SUPs, kayaks and coming to Social Sails (adults only), no sailing experience necessary. 
  2. Upon joining, call the office to obtain the combo to unlock equipment and to learn about the equipment check-out process. It is simple. We do not have to be present for you to use our equipment.
  3. Sailors can get their "skipper check-out" during a Social Sail on Wednesdays at 4:30pm or Saturdays at 9:00am. Once skipper qualified, you can check out a Sunfish or a Flying Scot on your own for open sailing. Once you are checked out on a Flying Scot you can pursue getting checked out on a keelboat (Keelboat Membership required). "Open sailing" is unsupervised sailing outside of scheduled events. During open sailing you may take guests along with you on the Flying Scot.
  4. If you have taken the Flying Scot or Sunfish Learn to Sail class, you are immediately qualified to use the Sunfish. Just let us show you how to rig it.
  5. You can set up an orientation for the Hunter 25 keelboat and join the Cruising Fleet (Keelboat Membership required).
  6. Beginner sailors are encouraged to take our Learn to Sail class (Flying Scot or Sunfish $310) in addition to attending Social Sails. 
  7. Members can bring guests on the SUPs and kayaks for $15 per guest.
