Membership Renewal 2020/21

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL 2020/21 TO BE PAID AUG 1 – 31, 2020.

While there remains some uncertainty about when all the club operations will move to a ‘new normal” we are preparing for normal sailing and racing next season and are working towards rebuilding our venue hire operations as soon as permitted.

The Committee has decided that in view of the overall financial impact of the COVID19 on the community and members, the normal change in membership fees due cost of living increases will not apply this year, and so all fees will be the same as last year. In addition, payment of fees for next season has been extended this year with payments to be made from Aug 1 to Aug 31. There will be a late payment fee of $50 for payments received after Aug 31.

If you would like to discuss progressive payment of your membership and storage fees in these difficult times please contact our manager Amanda Innes. Any discussions will remain confidential.
