NEED SOME HELP?

Did you just finish Learn to Sail and you are joining our Optimist Blue Fleet?

You will need a Junior Membership. If you are joining Blue Fleet in term 1 you only need a half season membership. 

Optimist fleets have two coaching sessions a week and therefore pay a coaching fee. The coaching fee is $200 for a full season or $100 for a half season (term 1). The coaching fee is in addition to your membership. The Membership fee and Coaching fee will be automatically invoiced as a half or full season rate depending on the time of year you sign up. 

Did you just finish an Adult Learn to Sail course and you are joining our club?

You will need a senior membership if you are over 18 years old. 

Do you have more than one child sailing in your family?

Each additional junior member from the same family costs $250. We will automatically apply this discount to your invoice.

Do you live out of town?

If you are a junior sailor living out of town and therefore won’t be attending weekly coaching sessions you can check the out of town option when registering.

The fee attached to this membership is $155. If you are at the club for a weekend this allows you to join in our club racing. This also gets you access to our coaching sessions at a discounted rate ($20) if you are available to attend a session.  

I don’t sail Optimist so why have I been charged a coaching fee?
  • If you are a senior member and sail a class like a Laser that has weekly coaching sessions that you will attend you need to pay a coaching fee to cover attending these sessions as coaching is not included in a senior membership. 
  • You will also need to pay a coaching fee if you are sailing more than one class that has coaching. For example if you sail a Starling and a 420. You will be attending two coaching sessions a week so will pay a coaching fee to cover the additional session.
  • If you are participating in one of our additional coaching programmes, such as P Class or Feva a coaching fee is attached to these programmes.
