On-Water Pass – get on the water at RFBYC

On-Water Pass 

We are proud to be one of the many clubs in Australia to offer SailPass, we refer to it as an On-Water Pass because we use this system to cover other activities at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club. The system is used by people who are not yet members of the club but would like to test the waters before they dive in.

An On-Water Pass gives access to try keelboat sailing, dinghy sailing, St Ayles Skiff rowing and Power Time Trialling.

When you sign up for an On-Water Pass you are registered with the sports peak body Australian Sailing, giving you access to their personal accident insurance whilst participating in any club event. More information regarding the insurance can be found here.

There is no cost involved in taking out a pass at RFBYC.

How to get on the water with us:

Take a look at the Club Calendar to see what’s happening on the water.

You can find more information about keelboat sailing, power time trialling, dinghy sailing and rowing under the On Water menu.
