Guidelines & Fees – 2013
Read on …. for Membership & Direct debit forms
All new members (with the exception of Junior (Cadet) and Overseas) must complete the direct debit form for collection of 2nd and subsequent years membership, and attach it to their membership application form, along with a cheque for the appropriate 1st year fees in line with the above.
New Members only pay 50 % of the full fee applicable to their Class : This applies to only Family, Family single, Full, Memberships.
Associate Membership (no discount) only applies where a new applicant is already a member of an RYA affiliated Club.
The Lady Membership type has not been open since 1988, only existing members who joined before this date have the option to utilise this and the associated pensioner rate aligned to it. Therefore the Membership form does not offer this type of membership, it only appears in the Fees listing.
Before applying you should review the rules. Membership implies acceptance of the rules.

|Pensioner, Lady Pensioner, Student, Under 25, Junior and Life Members are not asked to contribute, but could do so if they so wish.
This will raise approx. £18,000/£20,000 based on current membership numbers.
The Club has received ‘Interest Free Loan’ s from almost 20 Members maximum of £500 i.e. generating £10,000. This is for a period of 5 years to meet the final element of the shortfall. (£9,000 has been raised to date.)
For awareness all previous loans of this nature were repaid as required
|Please remember that annual Membership Fees for 2013 have not been raised and that Direct Debit payments will now be collected over 4 months as opposed to 3 months, in order to assist Members.|
