We have one fully race rigged V15 that is available to charter for $25 a night. This fee includes the boat and registration fees. One of our dedicated fleet members will be present to orient you to the boat and answer any questions about rigging or sailing in the cove.

For boat availability and any questions, please contact the fleet's charter coordinators at

Although we work heard to keep the charter boat in race-ready condition, our fleet is a volunteer organization and regular wear and tear over the course of the season takes a toll, so we cannot guarantee that the charter boat will be rigged perfectly or even available to sail on a given night. Fleet officers and the race committee also reserve the right to veto use of the charter boat at any time based on weather conditions, the charterer's experience level, or a demonstrated lack of sportsmanship or judgment. If for any reason you are not able to sail on a night you paid to charter, please do not hesitate to ask us for a refund.

The charter boat is intended as an opportunity for new V15 sailors to experience racing with our fleet and decide if it's something they would like to pursue. It is not intended as a substitute for buying a boat or arranging for a longer-term charter from TISC or another boat owner. In order to serve that purpose, priority is as follows when multiple sailors are interested in chartering for the same night:
