Dues can be paid to the club Commodore, Vice-Commodore, or Treasurer at any official UTSC event. We offer three dues categories:

  • $60 Semester Membership – August to December in the Fall, January to July in the Spring
  • $100 Annual Membership – August to August

We can accept cash, check, or Venmo (@UTSailing) for payment. Dues can also be paid online through the RecSports Store from August 22 to October 2 and December 5 to February 12. We recommend that you pay your dues earlier in the semester/year so as to make full use of your membership benefits. Furthermore, the deadline for inclusion on the RecSports membership roster is September 23 in the Fall and late January in the Spring (although this is only for RecSports’ purposes, you can become a UTSC member at any time).
