We sail with Blue Water Sailing
when I visit my brother in LA.
There has to be a member
and it was a reasonable fee. There are no monthly dues and a checkout is required.
I joined on behalf of my brother (I paid his fee) so he is the member
and he got the roughly 4 hour checkout on a catalina
27 which I was allowed to crew on after the check skipper
quized me on a couple of things - no "freeloader" passengers for the check out. The check out is both a safety/rules of the road questionaire on shore and then an onwater test.
The boat is excellent & the people are nice. They have smaller boats and larger boats up to a Hunter
41 I think.
We haven't chartered for any extended period, just day sails
