New Membership Applications for 2019

It’s time to submit new membership applications!

Existing members of Salterns Sailing Club renewed their membership by 31 January and every year we have a few spaces for new members.

The club is now welcoming applications from prospective new members. Applications meeting the criteria below will be treated on a first come, first served basis until the club meets the maximum number (Due to lease restrictions there is a limit to the number of families the club can have as full members in any one year).

Membership Criteria

RS Teras at Salterns Sailing ClubAny family with a child or children aged between 7 and 15 can join Salterns Sailing Club if there is space. Salterns Sailing Club requires no previous experience only a desire to learn and enjoy sailing. All parents are expected to remain on site with their children at all times and help run the club, which is run by volunteers.

Families can join Salterns in the first quarter of the year after their oldest child is 7 (Year 2) or above as long as there is space. Any sibling over the age of 4 can also participate in the activities at Salterns to learn the very basics of sailing. Children aged 6 and above can helm boats.

As full members, children have the opportunity to develop their sailing in a variety of boats including Optimists, RS Teras, British Moths –  and when they reach the age of 12 (Year 8) they can put all the experience into action by joining the Junior Committee and helping to run the club. Find out here some of the events already in the diary for 2019!

Salterns Sailing Club is great fun! With membership of Salterns, you’ll have access from the beginning of April to the end of November to the wonderful facilities and use of all the Club boats depending on your sailing experience, including during the school holidays. You can also opt in for coaching and the many other events organised by the Salterns Committee.
