FAST Sailing Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit corporation whose operational budget relies completely upon its members’ financial commitment to the program. Professional coaching staff and a low sailor to coach ratio are the critical factors in ensuring a safe, successful learning environment, and these two factors drive the cost of our programs. By having parents volunteer for most of the administrative and logistical tasks associated with running the program, we are able to provide coaching excellence while keeping the costs of our program as low as possible.Downloadable Liability Waiver forms found at the bottom of this page.
Annual Membership Fee The
membership fee will be used to help cover ongoing overhead expenses of the organization, primarily coach boat maintenance, storage, and insurance
costs. Surplus funds will be saved
for asset upgrades and replacements.
Regatta Coaching Fees vary from event to event. We try to keep fees at cost, which varies depending on proximity of regatta, ability to use our own coach boat assets, number of sailors on our team competing, and a number of other factors.
Refunds or changes to a sailor’s schedule will be granted only under extenuating circumstances and the changes must be approved in writing, in advance, by the FAST Class Coordinator. If, at the last minute, your sailor is unable to attend a practice/regatta please notify the practice coordinator by cell phone.
FAST reserves the right to cancel a practice for any reason and in this case will notify families and credit their accounts for the missed practice.
