SAILPASS - Non-members can apply for temporary membership with JBSC to get a Sail Pass, usually for a day.
SailPass is a temporary membership class that enables crew to join JBSC for a day. Sail Pass provides applicants with an Australian Sailing Number and personal accident insurance cover and meets the requirements of Rule 46 of the Racing Rules of Sailing 2021 - 2024 for skippers and crew. It also covers non-sailing crew on the start boat and those who assist the club as Covid-19 marshalls and helpers in other ways. All participants at JBSC, on every day, must have current membership or a Sail Pass, and a current Australian Sailing Number.
Note:Memberships for the 2022-2023 season are due from July 2022:Note: A new membership category of 'Associate' has been added for $55 per year. Associate Members (and Crew only Members) shall be entitled to all the privileges of the Club other than the right to hold office, vote at the annual general meeting, or vote at committee meetings. Those that take this option need to fill out the membership form and join as an “Associate” (circle on the form). Associate Members / Crew members do not have the right to enter a yacht in events conducted by the Club. However, a yacht entered by a Full Member, may be skippered by a registered Crew Member, provided the Full Member is on board. Crew Members will be registered as Australian Sailing card holders (SIN) by the club, to satisfy the 46 PERSON IN CHARGE rule, and would be covered by personal accident insurance provided by Australian Sailing. Casual crew are encouraged to join the club as Full or Crew Members, after they have sailed three races as guest crew in a season. Crew who are financial members of other clubs, and have a current SIN, are not necessarily required to join the club, but it is encouraged, if they crew regularly.
