Cape Dory Sailboat Owners
Who we are?
The CDSOA,Inc. is a national organization of Cape
Dory and Robinhood sailboat owners incorporated
in the State of Maryland. We have members from Washington State
to Florida, California to Maine and beyond, and are always looking
for new Cape Dory, Intrepid and Robinhood owners to join us. We
offer a strong national alliance of Cape Dory boats and have a
system in place to charter local area fleets.
There are three levels of membership: Voting, Associate and Honorary.
Though the emphasis of the organization is on Cape Dory sailboats,
we welcome Cape Dory and Robinhood powerboat owners to join as
Associate members and to participate in all of our activities.
The purpose of the association is to advance the sport
of yachting and the individual and family enjoyment thereof; to promote
the educational and technical interest of the membership and to enhance
the social enjoyment and good fellowship among the owners of Cape
How do Cape Dory owners benefit?
All members have unrestricted access to our online

too. See Member Benefits for a current list of merchants offering
special discounts or benefits to CDSOA members. In addition, we also
have a very active message board, the Cape Dory Board,
where all boat owners are welcome to submit their questions, comments
and resolutions regarding our boats. Although CDSOA membership is
not a requirement to take advantage of our web site and the Cape
Dory Board, please keep in mind that it is paid for by membership
dollars, so why not join?
