Registration for the 2021-2022 Season NOW OPEN!
Register for the new season here! We are using a new website and registration system so everyone (including returning members) will have to create a new account. In order to make sure that we have a signed waiver from all our members, we have to manually approve your registration, which may take a few days to complete. If possible, please register ASAP so that we can start processing applications before lesson registration opens.
Lesson Registration Opens April 3, 2021 @ 10 AM
The lesson calendar is up and registration will open Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 10 AM (PDT). We expect that lessons will fill up quickly, so make sure that you have registered as a member on our website well in advance, as registration applications can take multiple days to process.
Also please note that there may be some last minute changes to the calendar, before April 3, so check regularly if you are aiming to sign up for a specific lesson set.
Did you take intermediate lessons last season? If that's the case, we are now giving you the opportunity to get certified on the Vanguards, which are our intermediate double handed boat. Last year, due to Covid, we were only able to certify members on Lasers but we are now hosting a free workshop to teach you all about the Vanguard. Content covered includes rigging, launching and landing. It will take place on Wednesday, April 8th at 8pm and you can register for it on our website.
COVID-19 Affecting Doublehanded Lessons
For the time being, we ask that you register for lessons with someone who is already in your Core Bubble. When you sign up, you will pay for both yourself and on behalf of your partner.
Please see our website for more information and how this process may change later in Summer.
Recruiting Head of Communication and Head of Marketing
We’re looking to hire a Head of Communication. This role is primarily responsible for communicating with potential or current members through newsletters, social media, and emails. On a daily basis, answering emails will be the primary task. This person should have sufficient experience and knowledge of how the club operates to answer club related questions.
The Head of Marketing will contribute to marketing campaigns and recruitment. This job entails allocating a budget effectively to increase awareness of the UBC Sailing Club among students and non-students through creating ads, organizing Open Houses, running AMS Club Day booths and other similar activities. Specific Club related knowledge is not required but could be an asset.
Both student and nonstudent members are welcomed to apply for these positions. These are volunteer positions and are not paid. However, both positions receive a free UBCSC membership.
You can apply here. Applications are due Monday, April 5, 2021 @ 11:59 PM.
New (Old) Laser in our Fleet
Thanks to siblings Neil and Devyn Cousineau for donating their laser from the 1980’s. Since we recently had to retire one of the Lasers due to extensive damage, we will be using this boat for this season and replacing it with a newer one either by the end of this season or the beginning of next season.
Virtual Registration Night & Office Hours
The Steering Committee is working hard to prepare for the 2021/22 season. We are sure many of you have questions you’d like to ask us as we approach this next season. Whether you are a member concerned about our COVID-19 guidelines, or you are interested in joining our club, we are here to answer your questions. That's why we are hosting regularly scheduled UBCSC Virtual Office Hours.
There will be an additional Virtual Registration Night on April 2nd, as well as additional office hours on April 3rd for questions regarding club and lesson registration. Click here to see our upcoming office hours.
We've renamed our newsletter from the old Tsunami News to the current UBSea News. Look out for our newsletter to stay up to date on important Club announcements and upcoming events.
