Our location at the end of the Northbridge peninsula means the club has a strong local flavour but we do have members spread over the North Shore and Northern Beaches areas.
There are about 200 families represented in a total membership of about 500 individuals.
The emphasis placed on junior training means many families join when their kids are about 8 or 9 to get them started in our junior program.
The club is also the perfect environment for growth and development of teenagers and there is a strong contingent with the full range of skills and interests from budding Olympians right through to committed social sailors. Teenagers and young adults also form our instructor group and this gives them valuable opportunities for developing leadership and mentoring skills along with specific related qualifications. Many of our keen young adult sailors will take their sailing to other clubs and classes but they retain the strong social connections developed locally in their teenage years.

Running the Club
NSC is run by members for members. There are no paid staff and everyone is encouraged to become involved.
We ask all members to make themselves available for one session on each of the Canteen Roster, the Officer of the Day roster and to attend one working bee per season.
Another area of interest is participation in race starting and recording results. This is quite a social activity and can be a pleasant morning or afternoon including some time on the water in the start boat.
The General Committee meets once each month and makes all management decisions.
