DOSC is home to a close-knit sailing community, united by a passion for the wind and the water.
Our members come from all over the world, families and individuals, young and old.
Membership is granted through a robust interview and point collecting system that evidences past sailing experience, sailing competence, willingness to give back to our sailing community and encourage respectful citizens. Once an application is submitted it is the applicant’s responsibility to gather points via the suggested channels such as racing, social sailing, training, and volunteering. For those who are actively sailing and volunteering, this process tends to be swift.
What if your partner or spouse does not sail? DOSC offers a Partner membership which allows cohabitating partners or spouses limited access to the club to enjoy our thriving community.
Children aged up to 18 years old are free of charge and the number is unlimited. Once a child turns 18 years they are chargeable up to their 25th birthday. Children 25 years and above must apply for a Full Membership.
