The KLSC is a
non-profit membership organization that promotes sailing in the Kentucky
Lakes area. We have over 70 members.
We have many sailing events each season, as well as non-sailing activities such as pig roasts in the spring and fall, the occasional cruise to area restaurants or clubs for brunch or dinner, raft ups, cookouts and the big social events each year, the annual breakfast in the spring and dinner in the fall.

When you register for an event, you step through several pages entering information with each subsequent page building on the prior. Many events will have multiple activities and/or items for sale. The activities will be specific things a person would attend like the race, dinner, etc. Items might be t-shirts and such that a person can purchase. Before you register, you should know who will be joining you and what activities and items each person will be signed up for.
On the Event page, click the Register Now button to start the registration process.
The first page will have an area titled Primary Registrant where you tell us who you are and who the companions/guests are. If you are a member, login and select Member (or Member&Guest) for the Registration Type. If you're a non-member, select Non-Member (or Non-Member&Guest) for the registration type and fill in the name/address fields so we know who you are and can contact you.
Then in the Companion/Guests area, fill in the names of all the additional people that will be attending along with you at the event. If you are a primary member and have setup your spouse as a secondary member, you can click the Add Spouse/Partner/Tertiary members button to select and add them. Otherwise, enter their name and click Add for each person joining you. It's important that you add them at this point
in order to sign them up for dinners, t-shirts, etc. (If you don't want to enter names or aren't sure exactly who will be in your crew, you can enter names such as "one crew", "two crew", etc.) When all the companions have been entered, click Next.
The following pages allow you to select which activities and/or items are to be included for each person in your party. The price for each activity/item is shown along with a check box. Check each entry as appropriate for each person. When you finish checking the activities for everyone in your party, the next page will ask event questions.
For many events such as regattas, we need to know the boat, boat name, PHRF, etc. Enter the information for these questions and click Next.
The next page will show a summary of the registration listing each activity and the individuals signed up for them along with the cost and total cost for the entire event registration.
Directly above the "Complete Registration" button there are check boxes
to indicate payment. Normally, Pay in advance and Pay at event are
available. If you wish to pay now online with a credit card, check the
Pay in Advance option. If you wish to pay at the event by cash or
check, check the Pay at event option. When you click Complete
Registration, you will be registered for the event. You will receive an
email with your registration information.
If you selected Pay in advance, you will be taken to a payment screen where you can enter your credit card information and complete payment. You can complete the payment anytime up the event by returning to the website, logging in and clicking on Payments to complete your transaction. When you complete payment, you will receive an email confirmation. Note that your credit card statement will show "Club Express" for the transaction. If you are a non-member, you will be charged a processing fee of $2 by Club Express. So if you are a member, it's important to login first and have the registration processed as a member to avoid this fee.
- If the regatta registration fee includes one dinner and one t-shirt, then for the primary registrant, select only the regatta activity and then select dinner and/or t-shirt for the additional people joining you. The regatta activity should only be checked for one person.
- We are now able to accept credit cards on-site at events. If you wish to pay on-site with a credit card, check with the event chairperson to make sure that we are setup to do so at the event.
