5.) Dues In order to get to practice and regattas we must rent vans, maintain our boats and facility. Dues are important to keep the team running. Sailing has the lowest dues in the university given what you get for them. Dues are $200 for the entire school year. After paying your dues as a first year sailor you will receive a t-shirt. In the following years, after paying your dues, there will be other various clothing items you will receive. Please pay either online with credit card during the Campus Rec registration or pay with cash/check at the Campus Rec front desk. You will be given several days to try sailing out before dues must be paid.
