Sail Pass

Try sailing today for FREE!

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

During this trial period the club will provide a ‘Sail Pass Membership’ at no cost for the first 6 sails, then a minimal cost for the subsequent 6 sails. This enables guests to participate in the club’s competitive racing program and to then use the clubhouse facilities post-race.

Sail Pass Membership at BYS works like this:

• The first 6 Sail Passes are FREE
• The following 6 Sail Passes cost $15 per sail

Once a Sail Pass Member has sailed 12 times, they would need to become an annual member. The $90 they have paid to date is subtracted from the first year membership subscription fee. 

The benefits of Sail Pass Membership

• Enjoy sailing, meet new friends, get to know our amazing club.
• Access club facilities including the bar and dining.
• Australian Sailing Personal Accident Insurance for the day.
• Australian Sailing number for the day (necessary for all who race).
