Try sailing today!
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 ‘Day Pass Membership’ at a minimal cost. This enables guests to participate in the Club’s competitive racing program and to then use the Clubhouse facilities post-race.
Day Pass Membership at BYS works like this;
• The first 6 day passes cost $15 per sail
• The following 6 day passes cost $35 per sail
Once a day pass member has sailed 12 times, they would need to become an annual member. The $300 they have paid to date is subtracted from the first year membership subscription fee. For example, to upgrade to annual Crew membership a reduced rate of $350 for the first year would apply.
The benefits of Day Pass Membership
• Enjoy sailing, meet new friends, get to know our amazing Club
• Access to 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)
