All BSC members volunteer their time to run the club, organise socials and sailing sessions, run the bar and maintain our facilities. As a member you will carry out a few duties per season, including racing and bar duties.
Storage for new boats, kayaks and other equipment is not guaranteed but may become available to BSC members from time to time.
If you wish to sail occasionally – fewer than a dozen times per year – then you should be a Supporter.
Supporters have access to most of the facilities available to full members, but cannot store sailboats on the beach.
We want to encourage family sailing, particularly introducing children and young people to get involved.
To support this, we offer a ‘family membership’ add-on; which allows immediate family members to enjoy our facilities. We define family members as partner, child living at same address or child in full-time education. They will receive a Supporters membership.
Memberships run by calendar year, so no matter when you join, renewal and annual fees will become due on the 1st January each year.
Membership fees for 2023
Family fee: Additional £45

"We are a mixed bunch – a group of all ages and all backgrounds. What do we have in common? Sheer exhilaration from being in the water, and the joy of making new friends at the bar afterwards."
Whether you have lots of experience or not to much at all – perhaps you did a course 20 years ago and have sailed a few times since – we want to hear from you.
Whenever anyone asks about joining, our first suggestion is to come and meet us. Pop down to the beach, see how we operate, look around our facilities and even join us on the water. The best times to visit are here. And hopefully many of your questions are already answered in our FAQs.
We hold trial sails for new members in April and May each year. After this, we are only able to take on experienced sailors. If you're not a confident sailor, we'll be happy to give you a few options to build up your skills and knowledge before you can join us.
