Sail Pass Membership

want to go sailing – affordable daily race day access

Like all sporting clubs, there are fees associated with regular usage of that facility and enjoying the services it provides. At SYC we make it easy and affordable for potential new members to try out sailing and our facilities without having to immediately subscribe to annual membership.

The Club provides a ‘Sail Pass Membership’ at a minimal cost. This enables you to sail at the Club and to then use the clubhouse facilities post-race. The ‘Sail Pass Membership’ allows you to do this up to 30 times before you need to subscribe to annual membership. What’s even better, any money you spend on the Sail Pass Membership will reduce your nomination fee when you do switch over to annual membership.

SAIL Pass Membership at SYC works like this;

Once you have sailed 30 times, you then need to become an annual member. Money spent (up to $300) on the Sail Pass will be used to reduce any nomination fee when you upgrade to annual membership.
