Welcome to NSSC


Welcome to North Star Sail Club.  I’m Commodore John Hurite.  NSSC is a member run and maintained club whose primary goal is to enjoy sailing and the comradery of fellow boaters through activities both on, and off the water. Our family orientated membership covers a broad spectrum of boaters who all share a common love of the water and the great outdoors with a sharp focus on Sailing.

Most of our marina is on the Southern bank of the Clinton River in Harrison Township Michigan and situated around our clubhouse providing a leisurely 15-minute boat ride to access great freshwater sailing in, Anchor Bay, Lake St Clair, and over the horizon. We also have a more secluded marina, directly across the road from the clubhouse, which takes you on a peaceful journey through a safe harbor lagoon, and then past Metro Beach Park, which leads directly into Lake St. Clair.

We also provide great social gathering areas like our outdoor kitchen, picnic areas, and bonfire pit. We are a first rate, 109-boat slip marina and member run clubhouse. Our 120-person capacity clubhouse has a fully stocked member accessible bar, a full service kitchen with an in house caterer, and an outdoor tent to expand the occupancy capacity of our facilities. Find out more about our beautiful facilities, click here.

There is always something happening at NSSC. The sailing season here is from the beginning of April on through the end of October with plenty of racing depending on your skill and interest level. Our active Race Committee has organized weekday and weekend club, and invitational racing. Our Cruising Committee hosts monthly cruising events, and our energetic Social Committee has home, and away events throughout the year. NSSC is also a proud sponsor and promoter of a very recognized Jr. Sailing organization, North Star Junior Sailing.

Our founding father's primary goal was to keep the sport of sailing affordable. We continue that mission today with competitive dockage and storage rates, and a variety of affordable membership options. Be sure to visit the membership information page on becoming a NSSC member.  Also, check us out on our Facebook page and then come join us and make your summers, and winters fun and adventurous for the whole family! 

Thanks for visiting.
