A dinghy is a great way to enjoy the harbor, ocean and beaches. And the Cohasset Sailing Club offers affordable slips to safely and conveniently dock your dinghy.
A CSC dock slip is a CSC member-only benefit. You must be a member in good standing to renew your rental, to apply for one or to hold a position on the Waiting List.
Availability and Fee
You must be a 2020 Dock Space holder to register for a dock space for 2021. If you were not a dock space holder in 2020 you may register for the wait list. If you registered in error and paid for a dock space and harbor fee, your payment will be refunded.
Slip availability varies from year to year depending upon renewal trends. On average, there are just a few spaces that become available. The following are required to rent a dock space at the CSC; a Dock Space Fee ($450,) CSC Membership Fee ($400) and Harbor Fee ($108) paid in full before March 31.
All boats with a motor must pay a $108 Harbor Fee that is paid to the Town of Cohasset. As a service to our dock space holding members, CSC collects the fee and issues payment to the Town of Cohasset on their behalf.
Assignment and Maintenance Procedure
Existing slip renters are able to hold their slips from year to year by registering and paying for membership, dock space and harbor fee by March 31. No late dock space registration/payment will be accepted. The space will be reassigned to the next member listed as #1 on the waiting list.
Slip numbers and positions are assigned by the Dock Slip Coordinator. The outside spaces are more user-friendly than are the inner spaces. As a consequence, as outer slips become available, existing slip-renters can be shifted or re-assigned to these favorable locations.
CSC is the sole and final authority in providing a slip, determining space assignments, dock space availability, and by applying or holding a dock space, members agree that all CSC decisions are final. We reserve the right to change the policy at any time and without prior notice.
Waiting List Procedure
There is a members waiting list to be fair to those who continue to support the club year after year and who wish to have a dinghy at the club.
This publicly posted waiting list of members will be maintained by the club on the website. It establishes a ranking of slip applicants from which available slips were doled-out. Those not obtaining a slip at the beginning of the new season will be kept on the waiting list in the current order as long as their memberships are maintained without lapse. You must be a member to hold a spot on the waiting list each year.
As dock slips become available the top position on the waiting list will be notified.
Dinghy Requirements and Restrictions
Maximum 12` length, 5` 6“ beam. No aluminum. Oversize boats will be removed.
Motors must be kept covered if in the upright position. If found upright, the motor will be put in the down position by club staff .
Note to all 2020 dock space holders
Your dock space will be renewed for 2021 only when YOU REGISTER on this website and your membership, dock space fee and Harbor Fee are paid in full by MARCH 31, 2021.
Our dock space coordinator will send your slip assignment and sticker via mail.
For those interested in a dock space, you must be a registered member and pay the annual membership fee to remain on the wait list.
