Welcome to our Sailing Members Area

Sailing Registration

All craft must be registered with the Membership and Berthing Secretary and a registration fee paid before being brought on to the premises. The membership form at Membermojo can be used to facilitate this.

Sailing Insurance

You must also demonstrate that the craft is insured. It MUST have third party liability cover for £2million. The value of the craft, fittings, trailer and accessories (action cams, etc.) is up to the owner.

Sailing with Visitors

Craft temporarily brought to the Club for Open Meetings and / or any other special purposes will also be required to demonstrate third party liability cover. This is normally done at event registration but can be approved by a Flag Officer, Director or Member of the Sailing Committee under other circumstances.

On this page, you should find everything you need to know and more…
