Wilsonian Sailing Club welcomes all new members whether they currently own a boat or not and are proud of our open and friendly atmosphere and want to promote and encourage dinghy sailing for all.

Please feel free to contact the Membership Secretary or visit on a Sunday and talk to the Chief Duty Officer.

Wilsonian Sailing Club is run entirely by its members. Prior to joining all applicants will need to fill out an application form and meet a member of the committee who will explain members' obligations.


Membership types

To accommodate the different circumstances of different groups there are different types of membership.

  • Full Members

    A Full Member must be over 18 years of age or over on the 1st January. They enjoy the full amenities of the Club and have the power to vote.

  • Family Members

    Family Membership consist of cohabiting partners, or a single parent, and their children up to the age of eighteen years on the 1st January. Each cohabiting partner, or single parent, is considered a Full member.

  • Student Members

    Student Membership is open to persons aged 18 years or over on the 1st January receiving full-time education. Student Members have all the rights and privileges of Full Membership. This class of membership may be extended to persons in a recognised low paid training post such as an apprenticeship at the General Committee's discretion.

  • Junior Members

    Junior Membership is open to those up to the age of eighteen years on the 1st January. A Junior Member is entitled to the amenities of the Club and has no power to vote. Before a candidate is nominated for Junior Membership a parent or guardian must sign a form absolving the Club of any liability in the event of injury or accident.

  • Country Members

    An existing member may apply to be transferred to Country Membership on moving from the district and whose normal address is then over 75 miles from the Club. A Country Member shall be entitled to the amenities of the Club, with the exception of the allocation of a space in the dinghy park.

  • Temporary Members

    At the discretion of the General Committee, Temporary Members may be elected and shall be entitled to the amenities of the Club. Temporary Members do not have any voting rights. Visitors to Open Meetings are treated as Temporary Members.

  • Honorary Members

    The Club, on the recommendation of the General Committee, may in General Meeting elect Honorary Members.

  • Life Members

    At the discretion of the General Committee, members may be elected to Life Membership on payment of such single subscription as determined by the General Committee. Applicants for Life Membership need to have been full members of the Club for at least twelve consecutive months.

  • Associate Members

    Associate membership may be offered to a member of ten or more years standing who is retiring from regular sailing because of age or ill-health. Applications for Associate Membership are granted at the discretion of the General Committee.


Requirements

  • Wilsonian SC is a family club and children are welcomed.
  • You do not have to own your own boat as there is always someone looking for a crew and it gives you the chance to try out different types of boat before you buy your own.
  • Our junior training caters for children of 6 years of age and above following the RYA Youth Sailing scheme.
  • Non-sailing members are always welcome to help with the running of the club or just enjoying the facilities.
  • The club is unpretentious and has no employees, which keeps subscriptions down. However, this does mean that we expect our members to give up two or three days sailing during the season to help run the club.

Fees

Wilsonian Sailing Club expects to keep all fees to members to a bare minimum so we encourage as many people who want to join and sail to get onto the water.
