Covid 19 Statement

During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, the team at the Sailboat Shop is dedicated to using the best practices to keep you safe amidst the Covid 19 virus crisis.  In that regard we have suspended tours and lessons during the month of April.  Our service department is operational upon a limited basis.   We will rent boats to students and previously checked out renters with the understanding that renters will keep the one fathom (6 feet) social distancing guidelines in place around the marina facility and naturally, on the boat. Rentals can be scheduled over the phone. The boats are sanitized with a bleach solution before and after each use. You can still list or buy a boat from us to get away from the crowd!   Please contact us regarding your sailing needs and we will see what we can do during this unique situation.
