Grounds & Facilities

Our grounds include a double launching ramp, floating club docks, large drysail area, and an inland crank hoist with adjacent water hose. The clubhouse underwent major renovation in Winter 2006, and sports a well-appointed kitchen, remodeled bathroom and shower facilities, indoor meeting area, and a large roofed porch overlooking the reservoir.  Next to the clubhouse is a playground for the little skippers.  They’ll enjoy the swings, monkey bars and slide under your supervision.


Fully equipped clubhouse at the Hoover Sailing Club in Westerville, Ohio.

The Clubhouse sits on a hill, providing a great view of the water and the racecourse. It has a porch, casual seating on the shore, and a fireplace, full kitchen, restrooms with showers, and other amenities inside. We are an extremely social club, so there are regular events at the clubhouse, and plenty of members choose to socialize there during the races or on any nice evening during the summer.

Boat Storage

Just inside the club entrance is the boat storage area. Members store their boats in assigned spaces, and the Denison University, Ohio State University, and OSU NROTC sailing teams store their boats here as well. We even have a few spaces for member kayaks. Our grounds are secured by a locked gate.

In the Water

We focus on the water in addition to the clubhouse. Three main docks serve the launching area, a courtesy dock and a mooring dock. Some members choose to store their boat in the water during the sailing season in one of our slips.
