SailPass is a way for people who are not yet a Member of a sailing club to be eligible to sail in GFS races in accordance with Rule 46 of the 2021-24 Racing Rules of Sailing.

SailPass offers a flexible, accessible and affordable introduction to sailing for people new to the sport and, importantly for SailPass holders and boat-owners alike, provides personal injury insurance cover through Australian Sailing.

From 1st January 2022, all persons on board a boat while racing with GFS must either be:

  • a GFS Full or Crew member,
  • a member of a Club affiliated to Australian Sailing and have an Australian Sailing number,
  • an international competitor who is a member of club affiliated to a World Sailing recognised Member National Authority, OR
  • hold a valid Sail Pass.

Casual or new sailors can sail in GFS races on three separate occasions with a valid SailPass, after which they will need to become crew members of the club. There is no cost involved for these 3 Sailpass races.
