Membership Costs & Information

Welcome to Lane Cove 12ft Sailing Skiff Club. Membership helps support our club with costs such as insurance, rates, repairs and maintenance of the facilities and boats. More people contributing via membership will help us keep the cost of membership down. With the big rebuild about to commence, the more members we have the more favourably our club will be also viewed when applying for grants and donations.

Parents we encourage you to please sign up as an Associate, non sailing member or as a supporter, the club offers such fantastic facilities in a stunning location. What is a better way to spend the day than relaxing out on the deck or on the water.

Costs for the 2019-20 season can be viewed below.

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.
