Join us at TBSC
If you are thinking of joining us, well that's great. You can always use the Contact Us form to make some enquiries, but why not come down for a visit when we are sailing. We'd love to show you around our club, have a chat and hopefully answer any questions that you might have. We are a small but very friendly club, so are generally only open when some sailing is going on, and that usually means on a Weekend. Best check on the 'Fixtures' which you can find under the 'On the Water' menu, to make sure your journey won't be wasted..
And don't worry, if you do join, you don't have to take part in the racing. We cruise and can offer training or you can just have a leisurely sail about.
We are run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of all members, so everyone is asked to cover a small number of duties to keep things running.
In addition to the usual 'sailor(s) with their own boat' type of memberships, we now have 2 other types:
- SOCIAL MEMBERSHIP:- Allows you to use the clubhouse facilities, but only when sailing is going on, because unlike full members you don't get a club key. You also don't get a vote at any club meetings.
- CLUB BOAT MEMBERSHIP:- Allows people who don't have, or want, to buy their own boat (i.e. newbies who might not know what type of boat to buy) to still join and sail. Basically you pay for the level of membership you require (family, couple, single, etc) plus you pay a notional £110 (boat parking fee). Except you don't have a boat to park, so this actually covers free use (normal over 18 sailing members pay £10 a sailing session if they hire club boats) of any of the club dinghies throughout the season
- There are four main conditions: -
- Priority to club boat use is given to Training use during Taster and Course days.
- Club boats can ONLY be used when the Support Boat is on duty. So you cannot go for a sail on your own.
- You need to be able to rig the boat and demonstrate a level of sailing competence
- You are only allowed one club boat per membership per session
- There are four main conditions: -
In the panel below you'll see the various membership costs. You'll also see attached a form that provides the reduced fees should you join after 1st June. If all of this has left your appetite whetted, and you'd like to join us, then why not grab an Application Form and get things started?
