Center hours vary throughout the year. If you’d like to stop by, give us a call to make sure we're in the office (we're often working on projects outside and/or flex our hours based on weather/time of year). We are reachable in the Center at (704) 947-7245 (SAIL). We'd love to have you come by to check us out. The Center Director is always available to answer questions about purchasing a 12-month membership, programs or boat donations at (704) 909-8929.
Generally, we follow the schedule below:
Monday - Friday: 9:00am-5:00pm
Saturday - Sunday: Office Closed
*Equipment is available for member use 7 days a week, sunrise to sunset.*
For unsupervised member activities:
For members who are qualified by our staff, "Open" sailing, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding are available from Sunrise to Sunset, seven days a week. Qualified members simply check out their boat and go. All they have to do is fill out the log book out back so we can track usage and stay on top of maintenance. Unsupervised weekday sailing during the winter months requires permission from the Center Director. Main sheets are kept inside the office and must be checked out. Weekend sailing during the winter months is limited to Social Sail. Please take air and water temperature into account, especially when paddleboarding. Click here for Sailing Rules and Procedures.
