The club has a policy of offering value for money memberships and keeping the costs of entry to the sport low. It is able to do this through a fleet of dinghies which has been funded by financial contributions from a number of supporters and the volunteer efforts of our members. All members are expected to volunteer their services at some point during the year. Our Volunteer Charter sets out what the club expects from its members and how it will support and encourage them in return.  It also gives some examples of volunteering activities.
