Sailing Event applications

- All Members individually must apply to go on sailing events. This is done online when logged in by using the Register button shown on the particular event page. There is a general cut-off date for applications of 7 days before sailing events (some may be longer). After that date you can contact the event organiser who may still be able to fit you in.

Applications are made as either as a Skipper or a Crew member. Skippers may include non-members as Guests on their applications. An email will be sent confirming the application to both the member and the event organiser.

Social Event applications

Members can apply and also add guests who can also be other Club members. The events often involve  a payment which is easily paid using the on-line facility.

Note: if you have to cancel your application then you must contact the event organiser directly - there is no online facility to do it.

    The Trinity House Story -David Whitehead

    David Whitehead, a Trinity House Ambassador will be speaking (he was formerly Director of the British Ports Association from 1993 to 201)   His talk will be on "The Trinity House story"

     The Corporation of Trinity House is an organisation little known to the general public. Yet with over 500 years of heritage and a global reputation for excellence it's a vital part of Britain's maritime infrastructure. Its leading role in developing and maintaining aids to navigation for all types of shipping, its skill base as the leading maritime fraternity and its activities as the largest self-funded maritime charity make it a diverse and forward-thinking organisation, all the more fascinating for being backed up by such a rich history. Hear more about what Trinity House does for you, where it has come from and where it's going in this interesting overview of one of the UK's most misunderstood treasures.
