Online Registration Help

Online registration for the CBYC Sailing School is hosted by Checklick, which provides the online registration, student tracking and certification platform for Sail Canada. Checklick also provides credit card payment services.

This Help Page outlines the sequence of registration and information that will be requested in the Checklick system. If you are unfamiliar with the Checklick storefront, or are unsure about the online-registration process, please review this page, before proceeding to Checklick

You may want to keep this help page open in a separate tab or window while completing the registration.

CBYC Storefront

The CBYC Storefront on Checklick will show a listing of the sessions available for registration in each of our programs. Selecting “add to cart” for the session you wish to enroll in starts the registration process.

Checklick Account (Profile)

The first step in registering is to set-up or log into an existing Checklick account for the student being registered.  Every student requires their own Checklick account, even those registered manually, as all Sail Canada student evaluations, progress reports, and certifications must be done in the Checklick system. Remember, the account is for the participant being registered, so  please enter the name and birth date of the student – NOT the person (eg parent) doing the registration.

If the student already has an account, you will be prompted to use it. If another immediate family member already has an account, Checklick may think you are trying to set up a duplicate account, and give you the option of using the existing account or creating a new one. Remember that every student requires their own account to allow the instructors to evaluate them.

Mandatory personal information is required to set up a new profile, including: the student’s name and birth date, a contact email (student or parent), mailing address, phone number, and the name and contact details for the person who should be contacted in case of an emergency. If using an existing account, you will be asked to confirm that the information already on file is correct.

Create Account (optional)

If you are creating a new student profile, you will be given the option of creating a Checklick login for the account. This username and password allow you to sign in to Checklick to review the student’s progress, assessments and certifications. Please note that an account for the student will be created whether you complete or skip this step. If you skip this step, or later forget your login or password, the Sailing School Administrator can (re)set it for you.

Discounts and Order Questions

You will next be presented with optional discounts and questions for the course you have selected. The following discounts may be available:

  • CBYC Full Member Discount is only applicable to students who are CBYC Full Members, as well as their children and grandchildren;
  • Early Registration Discount is applicable to youth registrations made no later than the 1st of May;
  • Multiple Registration Discount is applicable when you register a student in more than one session, or register several immediate family members (eg spouses, minor siblings) as part of the same order.
  • Pre-Registration Deposit is applicable if you pre-registered for this session and paid the $200 deposit.

These discounts must be selected for each course. Please only select those discounts for which you are eligible.

Note: You cannot register for adult and youth programs at the same time. If members of the same immediate family are enrolling in adult and youth programs, or if you have enrolled for multiple courses/students, but as separate purchase transactions, please contact the Sailing School Administrator regarding multiple enrollment discounts

You will also be asked several questions related to the course registration:

  • CBYC Membership Number (optional, but used to confirm eligibility for member discount).
  • COVID-19 Protocols (mandatory, acknowledging requirement for vaccination and agreeing to protocols).
  • Photo Consent (optional). This will allow the school to publish images of the school in action that may show you or your child. (Note: We will NOT identify you or your child by name without your explicit authorization).
  • Any other information (optional). This is where you can indicate any other information or ask a question pertaining to the course in which you are registering.

Additional Profile Questions

If you are registering a new student, you will be asked to provide some additional information for their account profile.

Terms of Service

To complete the profile, and at least once per year thereafter, you will be required to accept the CBYC Sailing School Terms of Service, which are mandatory to enroll in any CBYC learn-to-sail program, whether registering online or manually.

You will also be required to accept the Checklick Terms of Service, which are available on the Checklick website at:

To accept the Terms of Service, you must check the box and enter your name where it says signature.
For a youth registration, this should be the parent or guardian’s name.

Completing Enrollment

Once you have completed all the required information for the course registration, you will be given the option to proceed to checkout or complete another registration. If you want to register for another session or student, select “Keep Shopping” and then click on “add to cart” for the appropriate session.

Reviewing Your Order

Once you have completed registration for all the courses/sessions required, choose “check out” or  click on “show cart” in the top right corner of the page. This will show the shopping cart in a vertical black banner on the right hand side of the page.

Before proceeding to checkout, please review your order to ensure that:

  • you have registered for the correct course(s), for the correct student(s) and desired dates; and
  • You have enrolled in ALL the courses for which you wish to register at this time (for multi-session discounts).

If you decide you want to cancel a course/session before checking out, you can click on  “remove” at the right hand edge of the banner. Clicking on “show cart” again, will hide the cart so that you can make additional registrations.

Checkout and Payment Options

The final step is checkout. Once you are happy with the session(s) chosen, you can verify your order total, including any discounts, in the bottom right corner of the page. Four payment options will be available:

  • Pay Now By Credit Card:  Note if you wish to pay by credit card, you must do so at the time of registration in the checklick system.  We are unable to process credit card payment after the fact.
  • Pay Later, With Cash: Payment by cash may be made directly to the sailing school after completing registration. Please do not mail cash.
  • Pay Later, With Cheque: Payment by cheque may be mailed or made directly to the sailing school after completing registration.
  • Pay Later, By E-Transfer: Payment may be e-transferred to from your financial institution.

We encourage you to consider paying by cash, cheque or e-transfer, to help us avoid the significant credit card service charges, which are surprisingly steep; we would rather spend the money on sailing school programs and equipment.

Confirming your Order

Once you have selected a payment method, you will be given an opportunity to review the Terms of Service, and be asked to provide the name and email address of the person who will be paying for use in creating the electronic invoice/receipt.

 Placing your Order

Once you have entered the Invoice/Receipt information, you will be able to click on the “pay by…” button.

For non-credit-card payments, this will complete the transaction.

For credit card payments, this will bring you to the secure credit card payment page. You will have one last opportunity to review the invoice amount, edit the email address for the electronic receipt, enter your credit card information, and submit or cancel the order. If you cancel, you will be returned to the shopping cart where you can amend or cancel the order entirely.

 Follow up Actions

  • Cash, Cheque and E-Transfer Payments must be received by the sailing school within 10 business days of registration.
  • A Medical Information Form must be completed for every student and received by the Sailing School before class commences.
    Signed forms may be mailed to us, dropped off at the marina office, or brought to the first class.

If you have any other questions, please contact the Sailing School Administrator before completing your registration.
