New Members

First things first: If you have joined and are not receiving regular communications between March & November please contact us – your email address may be incorrect in the system or your registration on our membership & communications platform (Spond) may need a tweak.

What should you expect from your membership?

  • Regular communication through e-mail and on our Facebook page about training, races, duties, socials, activities etc
  • Access to the Clubhouse facilities (changing rooms, showers, galley, bar) and Boathouse (see also the induction checklist lower)
  • Access to club boats and appropriate clothing
  • Opportunities to learn about dinghy sailing, power boat usage, water safety and marina operations
  • Training sessions on Sunday mornings and racing wed eve / sun aft – see our calendar.
  • Occasional social sailing – ad hoc, depending on the weather, typically highish tide, moderate breeze. Watch for emails or check the facebook page
  • Print this Sailing Club Induction Checklist off – and get someone with experience of the club to tell you about each item – maybe even tick off the list to be sure to cover it.  A club can be a complex looking place, but this checklist should help you find your way round the “non sailing” kit
