How to Join

The Cal Poly Sailing Team welcomes any Cal Poly student to join. Prior sailing experience is not required. There will be several clinics at the beginning of the new school year (and throughout the school year on an as-needed basis) that allow new & prospective members to test the team before paying full membership dues.

For more information please email or show up to one of our Tuesday weekly meetings at 8 P.M. PST in Fisher 286! (info will be in our GroupMe bio)


Membership dues for 2021 – 2022 are $300 per year or $120 per quarter. Clinic dues are $15, and if you decide to join the team, this will count towards your membership dues.

  • There will be a tub of hand sanitizer provided for teammates to use upon arrival.
  • Boats, dollies, and anything else we use will be sanitized at the end of each practice using the following method:
    • Mix a gallon of water with simple green and use a spray bottle to clean all surfaces commonly touched: tiller, blocks, lines, and deck.
  • If any teammate were to test positive for the virus, all practices would cease until the appropriate contact tracing and self-isolation had ensued.
