1. What kinds of membership are available?
Regular Membership - This form of membership is appropriate for most. It is intended for those who wish to have full access to the club, facilities, and events. It also allows members to keep boats at the club. The cost for Regular membership includes an initiation fee and annual membership fees. Wet or dry slip fees are additional. All fees are normally billed on a quarterly basis.

Associate Membership - This form of membership is intended to allow novice sailors, transient sailor, crew members, etc., to join the Club at a reduced rate and reduced privileges. These individuals will not be allowed to keep property at the club, hold office or vote on club matters. Associate Membership is valid for a maximum period of 2 years, then the Associate must either become a Regular or Social Member.

Social Membership - This form of membership is intended to allow novice sailors, transient sailors, crew members, etc., to join the Club at a reduced rate and reduced privileges. Social Members cannot keep property at the club, hold office or vote on club matters. Social members may not enter or skipper in any Member only events.

Intermediate Membership - This form of membership is for those individuals who have not obtained the age of 28. These members have full access to the club, facilities, and events, Intermediate Mmbers are also allowed to keep boats at the club.

Student Membership - This form of membership is for individuals who do not fall under their parents membership (over 21, but less than 28) and are full time students. These individuals are allowed to keep boats at the club.

2. How do I become a member?
LLSC is a private club, not a public marina. Membership requires sponsorship by two current club members, and there are additional requirements.

The Membership Chair can explain the entire process, including the dues schedule and other costs (which we strive to keep quite reasonable).

If you already know members of the club who will sponsor you, you should obtain an application form from one of them or the Membership Chair person (members can download a PDF of the form after logging in), fill it out, have these members sponsor you and indicate so on the form, and then submit the application to the Membership Chair.

If you do not know any members of the club, you should contact the Membership Chair and he or she will get you in touch with some members who will interview you and may become your sponsors.

3. I would like a wet slip. Can I move my boat over immediately upon membership approval?
Probably not. We are limited by the Corps of Engineers in our slip capacity. As a result, in most instances our wet slip capacity is completely full.

A process is in place allowing members to be placed on a waiting list for a wet slip once approved for membership. You pay a modest non-refundable deposit to be placed on the waiting list and slips are assigned on a first come first served basis, subject to the constraints of various resources (boat/slip sizes and so forth). Wait times vary.

If you do not have a trailer and have to have a wet slip, alternate arrangements should be made.

4. I would like a dry slip. Can I move my boat over immediately upon membership approval?
Historically, there has been no problem getting immediately assigned to a dry slip, however circumstances vary.

5. Can I bring my pet to the club?
Yes, with restrictions. Pets are allowed at LLSC except at the Pavillion (Clubhouse), and with the usual expectations: they shall be leashed, picked-up after, and not left unattended.
