One might ask: why does PBCB have a membership structure if we are open to the public?
Our answer is this: we are a community-based, non-profit organization run by an army of volunteers who seek to grant universal access to all. And it’s true; our doors are open to everyone. For a modest price to help cover administrative costs, such as boat maintenance, campus upkeep, and utilities, we offer a list of member benefits, detailed below. Not only does a membership quickly pay for itself, it also affords others in the community the chance to fall in love with sailing and allows PBCB to continually uphold our mission of inclusivity.
