Our SailPass membership may be for you......

SailPass is an easy cost effective way to go sailing at WYC.  SailPass is for people with sailing experience who wish to experience sailing at WYC but do not wish to commit to a full annual membership. It's a form of introductory membership where you pay for membership by the day. Just $15 a day and you can register for up to five days.

SailPass can be used for either of our Sunday race days or social days.

Click one of the buttons at the bottom of the page, enter your details and follow the prompts; select "SailPass Membership" at Steps 2 & 3.

Use the calendar to select up to 5 Sundays when you intend to sail. Payment is made by credit card or PayPal at the end of the registration ($15/day).

This SailPass membership will provide you with personal injury insurance for the day/s that you are registered ONLY.

Been invited by a skipper? If you have been invited by a WYC skipper select "Guest of Member" at Step 3.
