Membership

We are always keen to welcome new members of all ages and experience levels. We are an active voluntary club, with a wide range of members with varying interests and we welcome membership enquiries from potential new members.

Our Membership Secretary will be pleased to answer any queries you may have about membership.

Applications

To apply for membership in any adult category, please complete the appropriate application form from the list below. For all adult membership categories, you will also need to find two club members to support your application and get them to sign the form. Please submit the completed form to the Membership Secretary and make your payment when requested. The completed application form will be displayed on the Club notice board for two weeks, and will then be formally approved by the main committee at its next monthly meeting, assuming there have been no objections.

Ongoing sail training for adult members is provided by qualified instructors throughout the season through our weekly on the water SkillBuild sessions. These SkillBuild sessions assist sailors to become competent and confident to helm a small sailboat. This training is currently provided by the club free of charge to members. The Club has a fleet of small sailboats that are made available free of charge to sailors while they progress through this skill-building stage.

After this skill-building stage, a member may secure a crewing slot with another member or may choose to buy a sailboat alone or in partnership with other members.

We have two boat pens for dinghies and cruisers. Sailboat storage is available to club members only and must be re-applied for annually. Permission to store a Boat is given for the currrent season, subject to full payment of subscriptions.

Clubhouse and Overseas members cannot apply for Boat Storage.

If you are interested in joining, please contact us.
