Prospective members are requested to complete the membership application form, which will be attached to your purchase. We are keen to see if you have any skills such as running the bar, doing the books etc, that you might be prepared to share with us. The club has a Child Protection Policy in accordance with RYA guidelines and so the Committee would like to know of those willing to be DBS checked and help with the growing number of junior events held at the club.
For 2024 membership can now only be purchased through the website. If you have any questions about this process please reach out to the membership secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org

Once you have purchased your membership, our membership secretary will be in touch with you regarding any club information you may need.
Sailing experience is not essential as some form of training is generally available. It is also not essential to have your own boat as there is often the opportunity to crew for other members and the club owns a number of boats available for use by members. Ideally, though it is hoped that most members will ultimately buy their own boat after a few years, for then the club boats can be used by other, newer members.
