You'll find every member is happy to answer any questions you may have. Becoming a member is really easy, so whether you want to join right away or you're just interested to find out more about us, get in touch today.


Annual membership fees

Full membership includes training* and the use of the club's boats and windsurfing boards. There are no additional joining fees.

Our sailing year begins on 1st April 2019. All memberships last until 31st March 2020. There is a reduction on some fees if you pay / renew before March 31st.

As all memberships end on 31st March 2020, there is a reduced membership fee if you join after 1st August. Most training finishes mid September, so there is a further reduction if you join after this date.
