Notice regarding Subscriptions for the year 01 July 2020 to 30 June 2021


The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on us all and in many cases will have had a serious impact on the financial situation of our Members.
It has similarly affected the Club as we have numerous ongoing expenditures that we need to honour in order to keep the Club going.
With this in mind we have agreed to implement the following actions to facilitate your payment of subscriptions for the coming year.

  • There will be no increase in the subs this year.
  • Membership Subs invoices will be sent out from 01 July 2020. If you have not received your invoice by the end of this week, please contact the General Manager, Natasha urgently manager@fbyc.co.za
  • Please note the 5% discount amount as stated on your invoice, may be deducted if paid by EFT ONLY. The deadline for these payments is 31 July.
  • Retention of membership is vital in order to keep the club running. During these troubled times we can offer Members the following payment options below;
  1. A payment plan over 6 equal instalments (no discount).
  2. Alternatively Members can arrange signing stop orders or instant EFT with their bank, we will grant a 2% discount on these arrangements only. Please chat to Natasha if you would like to set up any of the above arrangements from early July.
  3. Should any Member be specifically constrained and not be able to consider any of the above payment options, before considering the termination of your membership, you are encouraged to contact Natasha to seek an alternative mutually agreeable payment plan.
  • Should you decide to resign after considering the above options, please advise Yvonne immediately upon receipt of your invoice otherwise pro-rated fees will be charged. admin@fbyc.co.za
  • Please note that children between the ages of 13-20 years should join as Junior Members and those between the ages of 21-26 years should join as Cadet Members, if they use the club regularly.
Note that Family Membership still covers your children if they are under the age of 13 years. Please chat to Yvonne about any queries you may have.

NO YACHTS ARE TO LEAVE THEIR MOORINGS

Communication update on Return to Sailing

Dear Members

To answer everyone questions first…. As of now there is still no answer from Ministry on our application, and with the deadline only ending at midnight, there is not likely to be any news or updated issued today.

On our regular touch base with the Government this morning, we know that they have started the process and have received a large number of applications. We also note that by their announcement of the 24th They have reviewed soccer and given them the go ahead, this is so far the only federation to have received this which may mean we in for a bit of a wait still.

As much as the water is calling everyone out to it, we continue to urge and remind everyone to please be patient. We are not allowed to be out there under the current laws and we can only get out there on Ministries approval. As you will note by their attached communications (esp page 2), they are seeing this in a very serious light and we would really like them not to have any further reason to keep us off the water and use examples of regulations breaches to deny the application as submitted.

You will also note in these coms the very specific requirements that they are asking sport to compile under. We have addressed all of these in our responds and application and are hopeful that it will be accepted.

We have kicked off the process with clubs, and they are working away on getting the necessary reviewed and in place currently. The hope is that by the time we hear back on our application, clubs will be in a position to signed off as compliant as quickly as possible to get everyone sailing.

Once again, we thank you for your understanding and patience

Kind regards
SA Sailing
