Sailing Semester Card
Dates, Prices and Booking
Target Group and Prerequisites
The only requirement for becoming a member is that you have fun sailing. However, the skippers responsible for a voyage must always be able to show their inland sport boat license, the A license. If you do not yet have this, you can obtain it in one of our sailing courses. Minors must submit a written consent form from their guardian before participating in the University Sports Center's offer.
Content and Objectives
The boathouse at Wildenhof at Rursee is available for general sailing. You can sail here at any time during the summer against the beautiful backdrop.
The season begins with repair weekend and kickoff, during which the boats are readied for the season and brought to the water. The season ends in the fall. Throughout the season members sail in small, fun regattas, and some days are rounded out with a bbq. The dates are announced on the website and via email.
You need an orientation for each type of boat, which you can get from the person responsible or course instructor.
Furthermore, you must spend ten hours working on boat maintenance during the season, regardless of when you join. You can do this at the kick off or the end and during the repair weekends. The completed hours are recorded by the course instructors, representatives, or captains, and can be viewed online on the HSZ website.
If you want to sail with a sailing group member, you can purchase a day card for ten Euros. This allows you to sail on one of our boats on the day booked.
The cost is 70 Euros per year. For sailing beginners, the sailing course during the summer semester offers the opportunity to join the sailing group for the remainder of the season for 35 Euros, that is half the price. All the sailboats come with liability insurance for sailing group members with a deductible of 500 Euros.
Registration for new members begins at the beginning of April in the HSZ office. Please bring a passport photo and your sailing license. You can also renew your membership starting at the beginning of April using the HSZ online portal. You can then have your sailing license stamped in the HSZ office or by the Wildenhof caretaker. There is a 50 percent reduction to the price of the sailing card seven weeks before the new sports program begins.
Please pay attention to the important information about the sports facilities, materials, and prerequisites.
