Membership Information

What to do if you are not a member and just want to try us out for size?

Breaking News for 2021 - our increased membership will allow a reduction of fees for 2021.

 

Effective for our fiscal year Feb 1, 2021 the Full Membership fee will be $75 per year (reduced from $150)

The Associate Member fee will be $25 (reduced from $50).

Also existing Associate Members will get FREE membership for 2021 in recognition of the fact that the pandemic prevented them from sailing as crew most of the time in 2020.

Membership Application form and Waiver of liability form

Rating Certificates:

New members are encouraged to sail with us whether or not they have a rating for their boat. However we do encourage people to get a certificate to ensure fair and competitive sailing. We can help you measure sails, etc. to apply for a rating.

They are issued by BC Sailing (see www.bcsailing.bc.ca ) and cost $45.  For new members joining the club in 2020 who do not have a PHRF cert. we will refund the $45 paid on a one time basis - this refund policy is discontinued for next year since the fee reduction more than covers it.

We will accept a rating certificate for a period of 3 years from date of issue provided no significant changes have been made to the boat, rig, or sails.

For more information check the Sailing Instructions on our Club Racing pages.

We welcome new members.

If you are a skipper, not a member, and want to race your boat in one of our races there is no charge if you want to race a time or two to check it out. If you want to do that please send us an email or contact the Fleet Captain or one of the Exec members (See Contact Us page) who will advise you what to do. 

Before racing for the first time you must sign a liability waiver (the form is available on this link) before racing. It is helpful if you already have a rating certificate for your boat, or at least know what the usual rating is for like boats - but if you do not have one we will attempt to allocate one to you for your first race.

Membership types

Full Membership is for skippers of boats who wish to race their boat in our regular races.

Associate Membership is for sailors, or wannabe sailors, and which gives them first priority in crewing, plus free attendance at special events, and regular emails about races, etc.
