Across USA are thousands of local members-only organizations of sailors. Some clubs have facilities not much larger than a shack and charge very low dues. Others Clubs have elaborate marinas and restaurants and impose dues in the thousands of dollars. Most clubs fall between these two extremes.

Learning How to Sail. The basic skills of boathandling under sail must be mastered if boating is to be more than powering around in calms with the engine on. The best way is to learn how to sail in a small boat under trained instructors at a community or commercial sailing school and Yacht clubs.

Dinghies and keel daysailers are the most effective boats for learning because they reward good technique and punish mistakes more quickly than big boats. Once you've learned the basic skills, the next step is to try sailing under the tutelage of an experienced friend or an instructor who can tutor you in the basic skills, including anchoring, docking, and boat navigating. Many yacht clubs and charter companies lease boats with sailing instructors on board. The CraigMarine maintain this list of Yacht and Sailing Clubs that can be useful.
