Some Members Share their Thoughts
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what some of our members are saying…
Instead of owning a boat and never getting to use it, now I spend my time out on the water with good friends, enjoying our beautiful coast. The comraderie I have found and the wealth of experience shared by fellow members has improved my skills and confidence. Thank you VISC!!!
There so many benefits to the Van Isle Sailing Co-op…
1. Go sailing without having to own your own sailboat,
2. Your annual fee covers all costs of ongoing moorage, insurance and maintenance,
3. If you are new to sailing you can practice with experienced sailors!
It’s great to have enough people in the Co-op to help look after and take care of the sailboats to keep them all in great condition! This makes sailing so much easier than if I had to take care of my own sailboat! Plus the ability to learn from experienced sailors throughout the year is invaluable!”
