We appreciate your interest in Sebago. We welcome all those interested in kayaking, canoeing and sailing, from novice to expert, as well as those interested in rowing and racing. We are a recreational co-op and expect all members to contribute 15 hours of volunteer work to support club activities and maintain our grounds and equipment.
We offer group paddles as well as coaching to all our members. Membership entitles you to use of all club equipment (pending certification with sailboats*) when participating in a club sanctioned group activity. For those who own a boat and who are active members in good standing, boat storage is available as space allows.
Our kayak paddles and classes are not appropriate for children under 16; a parent must accompany all minors.
Our website offers much information about our club. We suggest you check our calendar for the range of club activities. You may also want to check the kayaking, sailing (be sure to review the sailing page if you are particularly interested in sailing), canoeing, rowing and racing sections of our website and contact the chairs of those committees.
