Fairwind Yacht Club is a volunteer driven sailing cooperative located in Marina Del Rey (MDR) and Channel Islands Harbor (CIH). Established in 1966 as a nonprofit corporation, the Club provides convenient and inexpensive sailing for our members. More information can be found at http://www.fairwind.org
Membership BenefitsClub sailboats of varying types and lengths are stored in the water for use by members year round. Our boats range from 14' to 40' and are docked in private slips in Marina Del Rey and Channel Islands Harbor. Membership is strictly limited to ensure that boats are always available for members' use. The Club offers ASA training and certifications to all members. Checked out members may reserve club boats for private use by themselves and their guests. Boats are reserved in advance using a web based reservations system, and are available on a first come, first served basis for day sailing and cruising. Restroom, shower and parking facilities are available for members and guests in Marina Del Rey and Channel Islands. The Club also organizes social and family events, and cruises to nearby marinas and the Channel Islands. The cost of membership in Fairwind Yacht Club is kept extremely low. Ongoing expenses are shared among the membership, and the Club offsets the cost of maintaining and updating our fleet through member volunteerism.
