Introductory Membership

We appreciate that some potential members may like to try the club before they join, especially if new to sailing. To address this we offer a one-off introductory membership subject to the following conditions:

  • The introductory membership period lasts for one month, starting on the first day you sail with us.
  • During this month you have the option to apply for full membership, and pay the difference between the introductory membership fee and the applicable full membership fee.
  • You can only have an introductory membership once. If you choose not to join in the same membership year as your introductory membership, and later wish to join us you would need to apply for full membership immediately.
  • Introductory members can sail with us as often as they wish during the period of their introductory membership, but cannot participate in training or racing and have no vote in any meetings of the club.
  • Introductory membership fees and sailing fees are payable in advance, to secure your introductory sail.
  • If you need to cancel your introductory sail, our cancellations policy is that sailing fees are only refunded if more than four weeks notice is given. Introductory membership fees will be refunded because the membership will not have started.

Subscription Discount Scheme

The 2020 Subscription Discount Scheme allows club members, in return for taking out a debenture of £1,000 with the club, a discount of £20 on their annual subscriptions and 5% discount on sailing fees. The debentures are for a period of 10 years, although they may be repaid earlier at the Club’s discretion.

Any member can apply to participate in this scheme and hold a maximum of five £1,000 debentures, subject to availability. Skippers are required to be members of this or earlier schemes, and to hold a minimum of one debenture.
