QLYC offers a variety of membership categories, for individuals, families or corporate memberships. Members may apply for exclusive use of the Clubhouse for private functions – the fee for which depends upon length of membership. The categories of membership are listed, together with a membership application form and applicable fees in the “forms” page.
It is possible for non-members to sail in our races several times within Australian Sailing’s rules and with some cover from that organisation’s insurance. You need to quote an emergency contact person with their phone number and complete a very simple on-line registration. This can be done on the day at briefing if necessary, though registering in advance using the link on the left is preferable. No commitment is involved and no harm done if you register but don’t turn up. The first three races under this system are free of charge (apart from the $2 sailing fee which we all pay). Beyond that 3-race limit, a fee applies for the next 5 races. After that it is necessary to join the club as a member. At this point your contributions to date are credited against your membership fee. As mentioned under “Keelboat Sailing”, non-members interested in participating may contact the Club Captain to express interest (email email@example.com) or by fronting up at our briefing session. This is normally but not always at 12 noon on summer Saturdays in front of the harbour office. See the Calendar of events for times and dates – briefing is 90 minutes before published race starting times. You will usually get a sail but it can not be absolutely guaranteed if you have not made prior arrangements. So please be sure you have established contact (regardless of registration) before you travel far for the event.
