Buy a Pass

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 pass holders.  The pass is valid from the date of purchase and entitles pass holders access to our fleet of Flying Scots, keelboats, Sunfish, Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs), kayaks, and all regularly scheduled activities for a 12-month period. 

Here's how it works:

  1. Purchase a pass 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 pass purchase, 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 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. "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.
  6. Beginner sailors are encouraged to take our Learn to Sail class (Flying Scot or Sunfish $300) in addition to attending Social Sails. 
  7. Pass Holders can bring guests on the SUPs and kayaks for $15 per guest.

Please feel free to call us with any questions: (704) 947-7245.
