The "Trial Sailing" program is available exclusively to persons who are registering at the Centre for the first time. It includes unlimited access to outings (subject to availability) on the Ottawa River for 30 days from the beginning of the season as indicated on the schedule published on the Centre's website.
Keelboat sailing is a sporting activity at risk of injuries. The "Trial Sailing" program includes an annual individual subscription to the Fédération de voile du Québec (FVQ) which provides among other advantages an accident insurance. Individual FVQ membership fees are added at the time of registration.
The annual membership fees for the Centre are added to the rate of the sailing program at the time of registration and are not included in the displayed rate. These fees are not reimbursable.
Il you enjoyed your sailing experience and would like to continue beyond the trial period, you can easily opt for the "Sail all Summer" program at any time during the season by paying the difference between the rate applicable for the "Sail all Summer" program and the rate for the "Trial Sailing" program.
The Centre will reimburse a member who withdraws from the "Trial Sailing" program prior to the start of the season as indicated on the schedule published on the website. The amount of the reimbursement will be equal to the amount paid by the member, less the Centre’s annual membership fees and the FVQ membership fees.
The Centre is not responsible for outings or on-water training sessions that are canceled due to bad weather conditions, boat repairs, or unavailability of skippers. Accordingly, there will be no refunds, transfers or credits to members or guests for canceled outings or training.
The Center collects the Federal Goods and Services Tax (GST) as well as the Quebec Sales Tax (QST) on the Centre's annual membership fee and on the rate of all sailing programs, except on the portion of the rate which represents the fees for the subscription to the FVQ. These tax amounts are added at the time of registration and are not included in the displayed rate of the sailing program.
