Harvest Moon

The best way to hone the skills you learn in our courses is to get back out on the water and practice, practice, practice. We have several boats available to members at up to 50% off the published rates of any of our boats. These boats are available 7 days a week to gain that valuable experience to launch you toward your goals.  Based on your experience level you may also take the boats out for up to 7 days at a time to gain coastal cruising experience. The Boat Bumz Sailing Club is available for an annual membership of $99 and no monthly fees. Members can also earn points to get even larger discounts on rentals, merchandise and sailing courses from East Carolina Sailing School or Boat Bumz Edventures. Points are earned for each rental day, helping with the upkeep of the boats and acting as Skipper or crew with events organized by the Neuse Yacht Racing Association (NYRA)

    I just ran across your website and it sounds just like the deal I’m looking for. I live in Morehead City and my wife and I have been wanting to get a boat or partnership or maybe even join a club. If you could please give me some more information on the club and how I could possibly join and or get into one of your partnerships that would be great. You can call me anytime or email whenever possible.

    Thank you,
    Craig Freeman

    I was very excited to find this site. I am moving back to New Bern after being away for 3 years (living in New Mexico) and though I no longer have a boat (sold my Catalina 25 before I left), would love to be a part of this club and help out where ever I can.
