If you are not accustomed to sailing small day sailors, we suggest that you contact someone familiar with small boats before venturing on your own. Small boats can be very tender and subject to easy capsize!


Also, it is extremely important that you reserve the boats on our Keyport Yacht Club website under the Club Boats Sailing Experience page, Boat Reservations. You must login into our web site with your ID and Password to access the Reservation system. We are requesting that everyone use the reservation system and adhere to the schedule to avoid conflicts. If by chance you take a boat without first reserving it, please check back at the mooring within an hour in case others are waiting.
