Some Questions You May Ask
How does KSC work?
The KSC is a non-profit club that counts on the participation of its members for successful operation.
Besides their membership fees, members are expected to participate any way they can on both launch day and closing day.
In addition, members must donate one day of service at the club (a “Duty Day”), usually on a weekend during the season.
Members are encouraged, on a purely voluntary basis, to contribute any time and skills they have to help with the successful operation of the club.
How do I join KSC?
Refer to the “Membership” section of the website to view and download membership forms.
For current membership rates, please refer to the ‘membership‘ section of the website.
All members who sail at KSC must be Canadian Yachting Association certified to CanSail Level 2 (White Sail level 3).
KSC provides this training course on evenings and weekends from May through June for a reasonable one time fee, as well as through a one-week session in July.
For current training rates, refer to the ‘Training‘ section of the website.
How can I pay for my membership?
Unfortunately we are unable to accept payment by credit card or electronic transfer at this time. Membership and training fees may be paid by personal cheque, cash, or money order.
Can children join KSC?
Children are welcome at KSC as part of a family membership. The club provides sailing training to adults only (although youth training programs are available through the Y), but kids are always welcome to sail with certified members at any time.
What if I already know how to sail?
New members with previous sailing experience must perform a one-time sailing competency checkout with a qualified instructor or experienced member, after which they have full access to the facilities and equipment at all times.
What if I’ve never sailed before?
KSC offers reasonably priced sailing instruction by certified trainers in the early part of the season and again in July. Members will be qualified to CanSail Level 2 upon completion of the 6 week course. Upon successful completion of the course, members have full access to the facilities and equipment at all times.
