Academy Membership

The Academy is the section of the club for 18-25 year olds. It hosts a wide range of events, both sailing and social throughout the year, and gives you the chance to get to know other like minded people. All of this is available for only £57 per year.

Your membership fee gives you access to all of the club's facilities, as well as the opportunity to enter Club events.
There are reduced entry fees for Academy members to events hosted by the Club.
In fixing dates for Academy events we try to take account of University holidays and exams.

As a member you will have the use of the Academy's own J/80s and be able to enter these into events and have access to both boats during the week for racing and training.
To book please contact the Sailing Assistant on .

Membership is available on temporary or full basis. If you already know two members of the club then you are eligible to apply for full Academy membership immediately.
All you need to do to apply is fill out the application form.
The Club will then invite you for a short telephone interview, following which your name will be placed on the Club notice board for two weeks.
As soon as your membership fee is paid, your membership card and details will be sent out to you.

The crew register facility is an excellent way to get involved with the Club this can be viewed on the site.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Academy and hope to see you around the Club house soon.
