Membership

Membership (2023/24)

Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club is a not-for-profit organisation, with 100% of member fees going towards the operation of the Club. Membership helps support our club with costs such as insurance, rates, repairs and maintenance of the facilities and boats. 

We welcome everyone to the Club, and have a range of membership types to suit different individuals. Individuals who sail regularly at the Club are required to have an active sailing membership in order to be eligible for pointscores. 

Once registered, members can view and manage their membership information (e.g. identification, contact details, qualifications etc.) via the Australian Sailing mySailor platform

Club Boat Registration 

The Club Boat registration fee of $50 is payable on all boats sailing at the Club.  The Club Boat registration fee is payable once per season per boat only.  This fee helps cover costs for providing race management and on water support vessels.

Class Registration and Association Fee

All boats sailing at the Club must be registered with the relevant class association. Ordinarily that fee is payable to the Club, and the Club pays the fee to the class association and formalises the registration. Class association fees for the season are:

Boat Storage

If you would like to store a boat at the Club, it must be a registered boat, actively sailing and storage fees must be paid.  Please note the Club cannot guarantee that storage will be available. If you do not already have your boat stored at the club, contact your class secretary to find out about availability.

The Club rules state that a boat shall cease to be eligible for Club shed space when it has failed to compete in three consecutive pointscore races.  The committee has resolved that in the coming season this rule will be strictly enforced where classes have a waiting list.  To find out more please read the LC12ftSSC Boat Storage Protocol.

Boats stored at LC12’SSC are not covered by the club’s insurance policyFor the benefit of boat owners and other sailors LC12’SSC recommends all boats should carry $5,000,000 third party liability insurance as a minimum.
