We are a self help club run by volunteers which helps us keep membership fees low. 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. Please see the Fees and Charges page for more information. You do not need to own a boat to become a member - see the articles on this website under 'About the club' for more information on club activities that will be available to you as a member.
We expect all members to muck in and help with the running of the club so the application process asks you to show that you are willing to get involved.
The application process has a couple of steps:
1) Download and complete the Application Form and return to the Membership Secretary OR attend the club on a Tuesday night (club night) and speak to the membership secretary who will be a the desk at the top of the stairs.
2) We will then ask potential members to then participate in two activities 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 a water-based activity.
3) After participating in two activities, you will have an interview (informal chat) with two members and we will go through the reverse side of the application form.
4) Then your application is approved by the committee and if everything is okay you will be asked to pay your fees and you become a member! Our membership runs from 1st September.
