Membership is easy to apply for - fill in the application form and email it to our Membership Secretary ( The Membership Secretary will enter all your details on to our secure database and will then send an invitation to join, with an invoice for the fees due. For a family the initial year's fees (subscription and joining fee) works out at just over £1 a day. A range of membership options are available and we can help you select the most appropriate one for your needs - email the Membership Secretary if you have any questions. Once you've settled your invoice you will be issued with a card to allow you to access the club building and grounds at any time. Fees for 2017 are as follows (please note ages are as at the start of the membership year ie1 November). Reduced annual fees are payable from June to October, with reductions on a sliding scale to take account of the number of months of the current membership year there are left to run. The full joining fee is payable throughout the year.

We are a club run by members for members, and have no paid staff. In joining the club we hope you will help us continue this ethos, and will contribute through undertaking duties at the club and coming along to our working parties. We also hope you will enjoy and support the wide range of social activities which we run - and help us identify new opportunities for club activities. It is YOUR club, and we need to know what our members want from it.

If you already have a dinghy please contact the Membership Secretary to let them know the type of boat you own. We encourage members to select and sail boats which are appropriate for our water and have a length restriction of 15ft imposed by our lease. Whilst members who own boats are allowed to windsurf in line with our bylaws, we are unable to offer paddle boarding or canoeing on the water.

Please read the club rules and bylaws before making your application, in applying to join you are acknowledging that you will comply with these.
