If you live within a 100km radius of Sydney, the next step is to visit the clubhouse one Saturday and introduce yourself to anyone loitering around, and ask to speak to a committee member. The committee member will show you around and you will be welcomed to go out on the committee boat for racing, assuming you have the appropriate clothes (i.e. stuff that can get wet).
After visiting us, if you are serious about joining, and can sail a dinghy, you can hire a Laser to try racing with us. This is a "try before you buy" scheme to encourage people to join our club and class (it is not a commercial charter as we lose money on the scheme.)
After racing with DBSC as a visitor three (3) times, in toto and not per season, we would expect you to become a member if you want to continue to join our fleet on Saturday afternoons, or use any DBSC facilities. For more details on visiting, click here.
If you decide that you want to join us, then the next step is to apply for for membership (please fill out this form).
Membership and storage/rack allocation (initially and throughout the year) is at the absolution discretion of the Management Committee, and can be refused without reason. Sailing at DBSC is a lot of fun, so please come along and enjoy our culture.
Boat Racks are allocated on a "use it or lose it" basis. Newcomers are racked in the penthouses initially, but if you sail regularly and are an active member you can expect to be moved down to the more accessible racks. If you don't sail often, you'll move up. When the club's racks are fully occupied, members who don't sail will be asked to vacate their rack for the benefit of a sailor.
