Yacht clubs, sailing clubs, and windsurfing clubs form the core of the Canadian Sailing membership program, with nearly 300 clubs currently affiliated with Sail Canada. Individuals who are recognized as members in good standing of a member club are automatically considered members of Canadian Sailing.
Clubs can become members of Canadian Sailing by submitting an application through their respective provincial sailing associations (PSAs). The annual club membership fee is determined based on the number of members in various categories, such as “adult” or “family.”
This fee is paid to the PSA, and a portion of it is forwarded to Canadian Sailing. For more details or to become a member club, please get in touch with your provincial sailing association.
Any individual recognized as a member in good standing of a Canadian Sailing member club is considered a member of Canadian Sailing. It’s essential for clubs to provide a listing of all their members to Canadian Sailing so that services can be extended to all members.
Numerous commercial and non-commercial sailing and power-boating centers are affiliated with Canadian Sailing. These centers typically become members of Canadian Sailing by applying through their respective provincial sailing associations (PSAs).
