I’m confused! What number and password do I need, and for when?
- BYS Member Number is used for facility access and BYS member identification. BYS Staff can assist you if you forget your password.
- Other IDs/passwords needed generally relate to sailing participation (RevolutioniseSport) and club racing (Memberpoint, TopYacht and Sailor App). Due to the technical nature of racing results and safety, there are a number of software products needed; this does require you holding a few accounts with Names/Numbers/Passwords. BYS staff cannot assist you if you forget your password for TopYacht or Sailor App, so please keep them safe!
