We will explain how the Club is run, the role of the Council of Management within the Club, and what is expected of you as a member.
Whilst not essential to your application we can discuss your interests and level of experience or inexperience on the water,
we can look at opportunities for assisting you if needed, to improve your knowledge of boat handling etc, courses can be recommended, whether in-house or organised by reputable local organisations.

If appropriate, A recommendation that your application be accepted will be given at the next Council of Management meeting, held on the third Monday of every month. Sometimes the interview process can take up to eight weeks, depending upon the number of applicants waiting so please be patient you will be contacted as soon as possible. We welcome applications for membership from like minded people to join our private members club and as such we have some basic rules in order to protect the groundwork laid down by our founder members to whom we owe a great debt as without their hard work our Club would not be as successful as it is today.

Please note that not every application will be accepted and members stay on probation for a 12 month period and as a proposer of a member it is a members responsibility to ensure that people being proposed are suitable for membership.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
