Our financial year ends on 30 April each year, and this coincides with the end of the sailing season (the last Saturday in April.). We expect all potential members to have visited the club before applying for membership, but there is no formal interview. Also, we do not charge a new-member fee.
Fees for the 2017/18 season are:
Laser Racing: $250, plus Membership fee = $500
Laser Storage: $400, plus Laser Racing fee plus Membership fee = $900
Tender Storage: $250, plus Membership fee = $500
Students, who have a valid NSW Transport Concession Card and provide us a copy, will receive a 50% discount off the Membership and Laser Racing fees. That means for $250 you can join and race with the largest Laser fleet in Sydney on Saturday afternoons between August and April (inclusively).
To encourage family involvement, members who are part of the same immediate family will receive a discount of 50% off the Membership and Laser Racing fees. Where anyone in an immediate family receives a family discount, no one in that immediate family can claim a student discount (and any student in that family should also claim the family discount).
We also offer a Casual/Volunteer membership for $5, which is for: (1) a non-active member (who wants to keep getting the newsletter); (2) a volunteer who needs insurance; (3) a Learn to Race participant who has his/her own boat; and, (4) a Laser hirer whom we require to be a casual member before hiring. There are no voting rights with this class of membership.
Once you have applied to be a member, the final step is to pay the invoice that is sent to you. Remember that you must pay the invoice in full before leaving your boat at the clubhouse.
