Fall 2023 Registration

The Chicago Yacht Club (CYC) registration is now open for the Fall 2023 Sailing season. The tryouts for New Trier Sailing (NTS) will be conducted at the CYC Belmont Station on Monday, August 21 AND Tuesday, August 22 from approximately 4 to 7 PM. Wednesday, August 23 will be used as a make-up day. Bus service will be provided for tryouts and will pick up sailors on the south side of New Trier East at 3:00 pm on Monday (due to early school dismissal) and 3:30 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday. All students trying out need to pre-register with CYC for the season PRIOR to showing up for tryouts. The Fall season is scheduled to kick off post-tryouts on Tuesday, Sept 5.

In addition, the Chicago Yacht Club will be offering the High School Pipeline camp the week prior to tryouts from August 14 – 18.  Anyone new to the team should enroll in this program. Great for all JVs and encouraged to participate, any V sailors looking to shake some rust off / prep are also welcome. 

Please follow the instructions below to complete your registration with both CYC and NTS. Note that the NTS dues are handled separately from CYC payments. These dues are necessary to fund the buses that transport sailors to and from practice as well as help fund the various NTS sponsored gatherings that will be conducted throughout the season.

  1. Complete the Chicago Yacht Club registration and pay the associated CYC fees. Experienced NTS sailors should register for the same team that they were most recently on (JV or Varsity). New sailors should register for the team that they feel they have the appropriate skills for. Those new to sailing should choose Sonar Series. CYC will reorganize the teams after tryouts, so what you register for will not determine where you will end up. (CYC advises that it will refund fees for anyone that decides not to go forward after finding out where they are placed.) Please refer to the the CYC High School Sailing page for more details.
  2. Pay the New Trier Sailing dues of $500 (using Zelle/QuickPay following the instructions below*)
  3. Fill out the information form below, including medical and insurance information.
  4. Print, sign and submit the NTS Code of Conduct.
  5. Print, sign and submit the NTS liability waiver.

All printed and signed documents (Code of Conduct, Liability Waiver) should be scanned and e-mailed to newtriersailing@gmail.com. Please use “Registration” and the name of your sailor in the title of the e-mail.

*For payment of NTS dues, the strong preference is for using Chase QuickPay/Zelle using the newtriersailing@gmail.com address. (Note, if your bank is BMO/Harris, they will not process payments through Zelle.) In the alternative, dues can be paid by direct deposit or ACH/account transfer to the NTS Chase Bank account: routing number 071000013, account number 930621763. Or wire transfer may be used: routing number 021000021, account number 930621763. If payment by check is necessary, please e-mail for instructions.
