The best way to find out what the club is like is to visit us! Come down to the club on a Sunday lunch time or a Wednesday evening (April to September), when there will always be a committee member available to welcome you and tell you a bit about the club.

The club offers a wide range of sailing opportunities including training, racing, casual family sailing and social activities. Windsurfers and paddle sports are also welcome. We have a number of club boats that can be used by members, so you do not need to buy your own straight away and can try different types of boat.

Membership fees are set at a level that covers the running of the club. The club is not a profit-making organisation and is set up as a private members club.

As a private members club, in order to conform to the licencing laws (not just club rules), you do have to become a member to use the facilities. To submit a membership application click here.

The club is run by its members, for its members so we ask all members over the age of 16 to take part in running the club. You will be asked to help at the club once or twice a year to organise the activities on that day. The club cannot function without you and this is a great way to find out more about how it works and to meet other members.
