Club Membership

Hobie Club Membership

Currently, the Club has around 30 boats and over 40 members from many different countries. We warmly welcome new members and will do all we can to help you buy a boat, or crew with existing members.
There are two main membership types:

Full Members own a Hobie which they can keep at the beach.

Associate Members don’t own a Hobie themselves but sail with full members.

Each boat usually has a Full & Associate member. And each membership type has a family membership option.

Please note: If a boat syndicate owns a Hobie which they want to keep at the Club, then at least one of them must be a Full Member (or Full Family Member); all others must join the Club as Associate Members (or Associate Family Members).

4.) A cheque made out to Hong Kong Hobie Club Limited with one of the fees below:

Full Member/Family Member: a crossed cheque for HK$5,000 + HK$1,300 x 3 = HK$8,900  (the joining fee plus the first three months fees).

OR

Associate Member: a crossed cheque for HK$1,000 + HK$300 x 3 = HK$1,900  (the joining fee plus first three months fees).

Club Forms

To encourage members returning to HK to rejoin the Club, we have a generous Absent Members policy.

If you are a Full Member or Full Family Member about to leave Hong Kong, then notify the Club Secretary in writing of your intention to become an Absent Member, and provide your expected departure date.

 By paying a one-time sum of HK$2,500, your name will be placed on the Absent Members List. Should you then return to Hong Kong, you can rejoin the club without paying an additional Joining Fee. Absent Members cannot keep a boat at the beach after they leave HK.

A Full Member or Full Family Member who leaves Hong Kong without placing their name on the Absent Members List and paying the Absent Members’ Subscription, or without paying the normal monthly subscription while they are away, must pay the full membership fee to rejoin the club.
