OCSC is fortunate in that it has one of the largest parking facilities of any sailing club. Nevertheless, the lot adjacent to the club is often full by 10am on summer weekends. If the lot is full, you and your guests are welcome to stop your cars in front of our building to unload your gear into our blue dockcarts, then park in one of the following areas:
The closest (northern-most) row to Spinnaker Way in the lot adjacent to ours. Be careful not to park in the double-length spaces designated for vehicles towing boat trailers—you will be ticketed.
Two lots over (east) from OCSC. This lot has ample spaces for cars and is only a three minute walk from OCSC.
We also ask that you please observe the fire lanes, and that you observe the Five (5) mile per hour speed limit through the boat yard and in the parking areas. The area around OCSC is a working boat yard; a number of people are present in the yard working in and around their boats, making speeding an unnecessary hazard.
