Snipe Fleet Guest A person coming to the dock to meet our members and to find out about sailing Snipes. We welcome any and all guests to show up early for any of our events to meet Snipe sailors and learn more about our fleet. After you fill out the fleet registration form, we can help you determine whether a Snipe or some other fleet at Corinthian Sailing Club is the best fit for you. There is no cost to a Guest and you are entitled to five sailing events.
Snipe Fleet Member: In order to continue after the first five sailing events, the Fleet Guest must join Snipe Fleet 001 as a Fleet Member at $50.00 semi-annual membership dues (and CSC as a Provisional, Associate or Regular Member). This allows racing in any of the non-regatta races for the next six months as either skipper or crew, all on dock instruction and all on the water sailing lessons. It also includes skipper or crew for all CSC regatta races that are not sanctioned by the Snipe Class International Racing Association (SCIRA), currently being the Fourth of July Regatta and the State Fair Regatta, as well as crew for SCIRA sanctioned regatta races at CSC, currently the Commodore's Cup in May, the Southwestern Snipe Championship in May and the Texas State Championship Snipe Regatta in October. It also allows a skipper to use a loaner boat in all the races (subject to availability and certain participation limitations).
SCIRA Member: Any Fleet Member who wishes to skipper in any regatta sanctioned by SCIRA must also be a SCIRA member. The annual fee is $30 for yourself and $35 for registration of a Snipe if you own one. SCIRA signup may be done ahead of time or upon registration at the member's first regatta of the year. At least three SCIRA sanctioned regattas will be held at White Rock Lake in 2023. This level allows participation in all SCIRA sanctioned Regattas, whether at White Rock Lake or anywhere else in the world. In the 2023 season, Snipe Fleet sailors participated in twelve SCIRA sanctioned regattas, including three at White Rock Lake. Over the past 25 years, Snipe Fleet sailors have participated in SCIRA sanctioned regattas in 17 different states and six different foreign countries.
Corinthian Sailing Club Provisional Member (without boat ownership): Any Fleet member, upon completing five sailing events, must also join CSC as a member. The lowest level of membership (at the rate of $30 per month) is a Provisional Member, which provides the member access to the club and its activities for a maximum of six months, after which the Provisional Member must upgrade to associate or regular membership. Upon upgrading, the provisional membership fees already paid will be applied to the member's new annual fees.
Corinthian Sailing Club Associate Member (without boat ownership): Any person not owning or leasing a boat or davit at CSC may, at any time, with the sponsorship of two current CSC members, apply for associate membership in CSC. As a CSC Associate Member, a Snipe Fleet Member have full access to the club, may use a Snipe loaner boat at any time to practice or day sail, may use loaner boats from any of the other fleets (subject to their specific fleet rules), may use a club powerboat (after receiving training), and may use the CSC clubhouse for private events, according to CSC rules and guidelines.
Corinthian Sailing Club Regular Member: Anyone who owns or leases a boat or davit kept at CSC must also become a Regular Member of CSC. Regular Members have all the privileges of a CSC Associate Member and may keep a boat at CSC in the mooring field or on a davit that the Regular Member owns or leases.
CSC Dues and Fees: Annual Membership Dues and Fees are payable on or before April 1 of each year. Any on-line payment made later than April 1 or any payment post-marked later than April 1 will be assessed a $100.00 late fee. CSC By-Laws, Article II, Section 1(d) requires each member to contribute 8 hours of service to the club. If the required service is not completed, the member will be assessed a fee of $100 which will be included in the next year's annual dues.
Payment of Membership dues:--CSC and SCIRA dues are paid through their respective websites (cscsailing.org and snipeusa.com). Fleet dues are payable through this website.
WAIVER, RELEASE & ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: At the bottom of the registration form below, guests and members must electronically sign and submit the fleet's waiver, release and acknowledgement form before taking part in on-the-water activities.
