The “Business Model” for the Regina Sailing Club is based on members paying a low annual membership fee in return for volunteering to develop and maintain club infrastructure and program activity.
Club members are thus encouraged to volunteer their labour towards upkeep of the club and so more equally “share the load” – while recognizing that some members will prefer not to volunteer their labour in return for a higher annual fee. Under this system, a “Single Member” volunteering 15 hours of labour on pre-approved work projects satisfies the “club maintenance” requirement. This potentially reduces the total cost of membership to the “basic annual fee”. For other Membership Categories the “maintenance component” is similarly calculated on a pro-rated basis.
|Membership Category||Annual Fees (2023)|
|Basic (Due upon joining/start of season)||Maintenance (Due Oct 2nd but can be worked off, see below)|
|New Member late season Application||50% of Student, Family or Single||50% of Student, Family or Single|
|New Member Current Year RSC Sailing School “Grad”||25% of Student, Family or Single||50% of Student, Family or Single|
|Day (limit 2 per season)||$15.00||n/a|
|Late Penalty after May 31||$ 50.00||n/a|
