Becoming a member


Please go to Club Officers page and phone or email one of them; they are a friendly lot and will be delighted to help you. Or, come to the club any Sunday morning or Saturday afternoon in the summer and ask to speak to someone.


There are various classes of membership available, with cheaper rates offered to juniors and young adults, and a family membership available for couples and all children under the age of 18 (or 25 if in full time education). Subscriptions are due on application for membership and thereafter on April 1st each year. Dinghy park spaces, boat shed spaces and crane keys are not included with membership and can be purchased separately.

The subscriptions for 2024/25 are detailed here. Ordinary £110, Family £155, Junior (under 18) £30, Young Adult (18 to 29 years) £55, Safety Boat / Bar Crew £10, Veteran £30. 

Dinghy park spaces are charged at £80 for members and £200 for non members per space per year. Boat shed spaces cost £90 for the storage of tenders over the summer, and £275 for the storage of larger boats such as Waveney One Designs over the winter. Crane keys cost £60 for the year. Please note: The crane may only be operated by authorized and trained users. All keel-boat owners are expected to have a crane key - it helps to keep the crane maintained and accessible for the use of the members.

The rental of dinghy park spaces by members and non-members can be arranged by emailing the Dinghy Park Manager (Gerard Gibson): Please note that the dinghy park only has very few spaces available, and contact must be made with the Dinghy Park Manager before any boats are brought in.


If you have any questions regarding which membership type is most suitable for you please contact our Membership Secretary Ian Colby who will be delighted to help.

Applying for membership is a two part process. 

First: An Application Form must be completed. These forms are available at the Club and are linked here: Membership Form 2024 CJ.docx

Then: The form, fully completed including (very important!) an email address, is submitted to the Club and the new member is then approved by the Committee. A minimum of 48 hours later (the 2 day period is stipulated within the Club's Constitution - see the Policies section at the bottom of this web page, and the Club Bye-Laws number 4) the member can be approved and a membership entry will be created within the Sailing Club Manager administration system. 

The relevant fees need to be paid, either at the time of submitting the form or once the entry for the new member has been created. Please see the Payment Options page.
