Please use this event to pay for the SAYC member boat checkout fee.  Once you have completed the checkout process, you will be a member of the SAYC Open Sailing program - you may take boats out, with guests, at your leisure, and you may also skipper in the WNR and DCS racing series. 

SAYC member check out process is detailed below:

To become certified to use a SAYC sailing dinghy, an SAYC member has to satisfactorily complete an SAYC challenge test for that particular class of sailing dinghy. The six dinghy classes are: Optimist, 420, Laser and Hobie Getaway and Hobie Wave, and Flying Scot. Checkout on the Flying Scot requires a separate trailering certification. 

Challenge tests are part of an orientation and can be arranged with the SAYCSC Sailing  Director and will take up to 4 hours. There is a one-time fee of $40/hr. for the checkout, payable online. 

Boats will be available as Sailing Director/SAYC Management/SAYC Authorized Volunteers are available.

When a member passes a challenge test for a class of boat, they will be given one of two ratings:

  • Level / Flag color code / Approved wind velocity range:

  • 1)     Intermediate / Green / 0-10 knots

  • 2)     Advanced / Red / 0-15 knots

*NO MEMBER SAILING IN WIND SPEED EXCEEDING 15 KNOTS. Also, NO SOLO SAILING IN WIND SPEED EXCEEDING 10 KNOTS. SAYC members must seek approval and re-certify for the RED level (10-15kts) sailing if previously certified in Green level.
