Jetties Sailing Center memberships are valid from the current seasons opening day through the current seasons closing day. Memberships must be renewed annually. JSC Memberships are non-transferable and defined as:
Friend & Donor - Any individual of any age.
Student - Anyone with a valid student or college ID. Nantucket teachers are also eligible to receive this rate, with ID.
Couple - One adult and their partner, both 18 years of age or older.
Adult - Any adult, 18 years of age or older. This membership covers one person only.
Family: Two adults and their children under the age of 18. This membership is intended for a nuclear family for example two parents/caregivers and their children. Subject to availability, JSC Family Members will be limited to 3 pieces of rental equipment for up to 2 hours. At the end of two hours, the equipment must be returned to the rental site, whereby the member may check in with the Jetties Sailing Center shack to see if others (public or members) may be waiting to use the equipment. If so, the member will return the equipment, though they are welcome to use the equipment again when it next becomes available. Or they may check out a different piece of equipment.
*Westmoor Members – Westmoor members are JSC "Family” members. However, we ask that any Westmoor Members, who use the JSC more than 3 times, become a Jetties Sailing Center Family Member on their own.
*Members may bring a single guest at no additional charge, as long as the guest shares a single piece of equipment with the member (large or small sailboat or double kayak).
*Members do not have priority over non-members, with the exception of during Mornings for Members. NCS will also accept Westmoor Club members (JSC Family Members) and JSC membership coupons during Mornings for Members.
*Exceptions for additional equipment use by the member (more than 3 items) may be made at the discretion of the Site Manager.
*NCS members may not use NCS equipment or facilities for any other than personal use. No commercial use, private lessons and/or payments for these lessons are allowed. This is grounds for dismissal from the site and for having the membership revoked, without refund.
