Our offer

We offer three types of memberships – full, basic or support – depending on the level of attendance you want to have. Full members pay a higher yearly fee but can take part in our society sailings free of charge, while a basic member pays a lower yearly fee but pays a sailing fee for each sailing to compensate for wear and tear, although this is only an option for students. The current fees are stated below, where the lower amount applies to students,  
i.e. members of the Student Union (excluding PhD students). A basic membership can be upgraded to a full one at any time.

Support membership is aimed at Chalmers alumni that don’t intend to be a full member but still want to support the society. Support members are entitled to sail their private yacht under ChSS flag (a sailing club membership is a requirement for most yacht races) and can attend all ChSS events apart from the society sailings, which are reserved for students and full members.

Full membership              600 / 1200     SEK / year
Basic membership            300                 SEK / year
Support membership       300                 SEK / year
Sailing fee                             50                  SEK / sailing     

Non-members can participate in society sailings for a fee of 100 SEK / sailing  – if there is room left on the boat.

What we offer to our members

As member of our society you will have access to sail during society sailings, which are held at least once a week during our sailing season, or sail together with a certified skipper. All members also get access to our online shop where you can buy ChSS branded merchandise. 

To be able to borrow the boats by yourself (for private sails) you must first become a society certified skipper, hold a Swedish Inshore Diploma (or equivalent) and offer a sufficient amount of society sails exclusive for the members of the society.  The skipper certification consists of a sail-up with our boat chiefs to test your knowledge about the boats as well as sailing in general. In order to promote this, the society strives to have organized schools for beginners as well as potential skippers at least once a year.
