Waterline Sailing Cooperative

Waterline sailing cooperative members have access to two boats. One at Point Roberts Marina in the United States and the other at False Creek in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Members access the boats through an online reservation system. Members receive 200 hours of sailing time during the high season (June 1 through September 15th), and a total of 300 hours in a calendar year. This allows a 4 night/5 day cruise during high season, or a 6 night/7 day cruise the balance of the year, plus additional time for day sails and short cruises.

Our Training Director and other members sail with new members to assess their skills, instruct them on boat operation and handling and build their sailing experience. If you need training, Waterline members can organize Sail Canada courses with a local firm.

Members are expected to complete 10 hours of work on the boats or other authorized activities annually. This work is coordinated by the Executive Committee and guidance is provided. Members use the boats for overnight cruises and day-sailing . The primary destinations for cruising are the Canadian Gulf Islands and the U.S. San Juan Islands. Waterline’s other activities include social activities, qualification sailing sessions for new members, periodic meetings and racing.
