Proof of Membership
Many people have been sailing with the yachts
of the Jersey Sailing Trust and almost as many have enjoyed the pleasure
of sailing in local waters, however, it is becoming essential to further
regulate how membership is defined.
It is now essential to be able to prove membership rather than merely
indicate one's interest. Consequently a minor change is required in the

of membership", it will be necessary for every crew member to be a "fully

establish such membership.
The principle benefits of being a "fully paid up member" should be
noted as follows:
- Advance notices of all sailing activity in
the way that you have received such notices in the past.
- Regular opportunity for "free sailing"
during the week days and often at weekends.
- Members Rates for Day Sailing or Over Night
- Inclusion in the insurance cover for any
damage to the vessels.
