We welcome new members of any sailing ability
We are a community amateur sports club run by its members for its members and by joining you are agreeing to do your bit to help run what is then your sailing club.
Before you make the decision about joining please come along to the club and speak to our existing members. There are usually several committee members around during sailing days each weekend and we would be delighted to see you. If you are interested in the Juniors Club then Saturday morning is the best time to visit. See our calendar to check which are the sailing days as we are not there on non sailing days.
Applying to be a club member is straight forward. Download and print the 2022 membership application form (printing it double sided helps us as it keeps both pages together). Then simply complete your details, sign it in the appropriate places, and send it along with your payment to the address on the form or bring it along to the club when we are there. If you can pay by BACS instead of sending us a cheque you would make the Treasurer's day.
Before you sail or leave a boat at the club you must gain approval from the Harbourmaster by completing a boat registration form.
Membership fees for 2022 and are listed on the application form. All membership and boat berth fees are non-refundable so we ask that you really do come along to the club for a chat before you make your final decision.
