Membership option

Participating in the course requires membership in a sailing club or boat club under SPV. If you are not already a member of HTPS or another club, it is best to join as a crew member. A crew member otherwise has the same membership rights and benefits, but no right to apply for a boat berth in the club's ports. The membership category can be increased later from a crew member to a full member by paying the difference in the joining fee according to the fee table. Under 18 joins the club as a youth member.


The customer has the right to cancel participation in the course no later than 14 days before the course, in which case the course portion of the paid fees will be returned. If the cancellation occurs less than 14 days before the start of the course, 50% of the course price will be refunded. The membership fee and the joining fee are not refundable. No cancellations/refunds after the course has started. If the club cancels the course and there is no substitute course or participation in such is not possible, the course fee and membership fees will be returned to the customer in full.

The contract for participation in the course is created between the organising club and the customer, the recipient of the payment is Helsingin Työväen Pursiseura ry.
