While the three clubs serve different needs, all members are part of the COOPER COMMUNITY.  All shore events including free member clinics & socials are open to a member of any club at COOPER.  Shore events are organized through the JIB SET meetup group (free for all to join)

Meetup members who do not belong to any of the three clubs above are welcomed as SOCIAL members.  There are many events open to SOCIAL members through our community. 

We love to have as many people out on our cruising & racing events as we can.  Boat access does come with the paid memberships at COOPER, so ensure you plug into the best program possible for that. 

In addition, some people choose to join more than one club program within the community.  If you are a JIB SET executive member, your CREW CLUB membership is free.  For all other JIB SET members, CREW club is available at 50% of the normal price.  JIB SET members can also collect CRUISING CLUB dollars without paying an additional initiation fee (normal one year collection term applies). 

CREW club members who have been a member for 12 months or more can join JIB SET with no initiation & an additional $129/month (combined JIB SET/CREW club rate is $169/month).
