'Become a member'
We are a self-help club run by volunteers so we expect everyone to muck in and help with running the club. For this reason we ask potential members to participate in at least two activities before joining in order to demonstrate their willingness to participate. This would normally be a monthly Work Party where we tidy up the yard or do minor repairs, and also a water-based activity.
After participating in two activities, you will have an interview (informal chat) with two members, usually at a Tuesday evening club night. Assuming your application is approved by the committee and you will be asked to pay your fees.
You don’t need to have your own boat; we have club dinghies people hire for races and sails, and larger boats are owned by members who often require crew for races and sails. We also have a rowing section and a busy social calendar.
If you are interested in joining, please contact Jennie Hawley, membership secretary and perhaps arrange to come down to a club night (7-9pm Tuesday evenings – the bar is open and meals available!)
Our membership runs from 1st September. Single membership is £249 per year + a one-off fee of £75 joining fee but if you join partway through the year the fees are pro rata.
