The Urunga Sail Training Club AGM are held in September.

Last AGM was 26 September 2020 at 1pm.

We always need more volunteers to assist with things behind the scenes like clerical, writing grants, helping on sailing days and fundraising, assisting in boat repairs, working bees and social Sailing days. It is not a pre-requisite that you need to be a sailor as any assistance is gratefully appreciated. The current committee welcome any new skills set that you can offer.

The club cannot survive without you, so get involved.

Course Fees and Membership fees do not cover the cost of keeping the doors open for this Club. The USTC does not charge exorbitant course or membership fees because we would like sailing to be accessible to everyone.
