Do I need a boat to become a member? 

Certainly not!  There are a few boats for sale on our Noticeboard, as well as around Central Alberta if you look on buy and sell sites. If you're just wanting to race or gain some experience but have not yet made the decision to own your own boat, you can sign up as an Affiliate member which allows you to crew on other people's boats and have the benefits of being a member of SBYC and access to the clubhouse to try things out!  This membership level is discounted to allow a trial of a full membership, is available for a limited length of time before having to convert to full member, as well a limited amount of Affiliate memberships are available each year.
