28 September 2018 Letter from South African Sailing to Sailing Clubs with reference to Annual SAS Membership Fees:
Over the past year we have noted that there has been some confusion amongst clubs on the roles of clubs collecting SA Sailing fees on behalf of the organisation. This is impacting the revenues of SA Sailing, and directly, the opportunities and projects that the organisation can address.
This is understandable considering the changes in leadership at clubs over the years. This document is aimed at clarifying the membership fee collection process and specifically to highlight the obligations of the club Commodore and Treasurer.
The updated SA Sailing Constitution was unanimously adopted in February2018after extensive country wide consultation with all Clubs. It governs the collection process of the annual SA Sailing membership fees. The area covering collection of annual SA Sailing membership fees is covered under Bylaw 5 (http://sailing.org.za/default/pdf/SA%20Sailing%20Amended%20By-Law%205%2020180102.pdf). This requires each club to collect SA Sailing fees from each of their members, and to pay this across to the Regional SA Sailing organisations. This arrangement is essentially unchanged from the original Constitution dating back to 1998.
Requirements of club
According to Bylaw 5, Clause 4.1, each club is required to collect SA Sailing membership fees for all its members with the following exceptions:
• Members who confirm membership at another club – Clause 4.4
• Members who have attained the age of 70 before the commencement of the club’s financial year – Clause 4.5.2
• SA Sailing honorary members meeting the requirements of Clause 4.5.4
Experience from clubs that are managing this process well indicates that it is better to include the SA Sailing fees as part of the annual subscription invoice and this way there is one collection process. Should the club not collect the fees from the member then they will put the member in bad faith with SA Sailing.
SA Sailing membership fees that are collected from club members are due for payment to the National SA Sailing account within 30 days of the end of the month of receipt – Clause 1.4.
Every club shall within six months of the club’s financial year end furnish SA Sailing with a certificate signed by its Commodore and Treasurer providing a reconciliation between their membership and the amount paid to SA Sailing in accordance with Clause 8.7. Should the SA Sailing Region want to query this reconciliation, Bylaw 5 clause 8.7 allows SA Sailing to request the club auditor to audit the return and confirm the membership numbers. This would be at the cost of the club.
Individual Member – R480.00
Family Member – R720.00
Student Member – School, R96.00
Student Member – Tertiary, R144.00
Youth Member Under 19 – R144.00
Social Member – R192.00
Temporary Membership – R288.00 Membership
Development Member – R15.00
Not covered by the above – R192.00
Frequently asked questions
1. What does SA Sailing do and why does a social member need to contribute to its fees?
a. SA Sailing is the national body recognised by the Department of Sport (SRSA) and SASCOC to represent and administer all sailing activity in the country, both recreational and competitive. All such activities in the country are required to organise themselves under one national body.
b. This covers all members in clubs and does not only focus on racing members. Examples are the access to water issues, representing sailors’ interests with SAMSA, being responsible for relationships with government and international associations
2. Why does the club have to collect the fees and not SA Sailing?
SA Sailing per force does not have the proximity or the same intimacy of relationship with Club members that the Club has. Nor does it know who has joined a Club and who has left. The club is already collecting fees from it’s members. Let’s remember, when all the Clubs joined hands Constitutionally two decades ago their common wisdom was this was the most efficient way to collect fees for a national body. It was also accepted that a strong national body was an imperative.
3. Are SA Sailing fees apportioned if a new member joins part way through the year?
No, the SAS fees are not apportioned for members who join part way through the year. This is due to the fact that each club has different financial year ends and, therefore, different dates on which part membership is paid.

On Friday 7 September Auctioneer Neil Mclaggan auctioned off the ABYC goods superfluous to our current needs. The crowd were kept entertained and the ABYC members quietly shed a tear at the passing of 60 years of history.
