Membership

The club welcomes applications for membership from all people regardless of race, religion, age, sex and skill. Subscriptions are paid annually on April 1st and renewal attracts an approximate 10% discount. There is no joining fee. Full year membership is from from April 1 to March 30. Half year membership is from October to March.

Membership benefits

All members may opt to have a key (a refundable deposit is required) and they have access to the clubhouse and lake every day of the year, subject to observing the Club Rules. These rules are as non-restrictive as possible. Many of our members use the the club for a ‘day-out’ with a picnic or barbecue. There is a sink and kettle in the clubhouse which is always available, as are the social areas and changing facilities. On club sailing days and club organised events the bar and galley are open. Potential members are encouraged to visit the club on any Sunday to obtain fuller details – that way they can also meet other members and appreciate the club atmosphere. Temporary membership may be granted whilst formalities are being processed. Don't forget to look at our Home page and net calendar link to find out 'what's on'.

Your inputs into the Club

All members are expected to play an active part in some aspect of Club life, at the very least by assisting with race organisation up to four times a year. The success of the Club depends entirely upon the commitment and enthusiasm of its members. In reality the number of duties varies depending upon which duty you do, Race Officer, Assistant RO (no experience necessary), galley and bar come round about three times per year, whilst safety boat crews do between three and four duties per year.

There are spring and end-of-season Work Parties (usually April & October) to tidy the grounds and prepare for the season or winter. Members muck in with all sorts of jobs ranging from tree lopping to tidying up the container or clubhouse. Any and all help given is much appreciated.
