Membership of Salterns Sailing Club
Any 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. The club is run by volunteers. All parents are expected to remain on site with their children at all times and help run the club.
If you are interested in joining, please come and visit us first to find out if the Club is a place you would like to join. Speak to a Committee Member who will explain how the club works. All visitors are welcome and guests are allowed to use the facilities 3 times before joining (Temporary Membership fee £5 per sailor each time, remember to sign into the Guest Book). Please try to bring your own sailing kit or, at least, a buoyancy aid which fits your child/ren as we do not keep many spares.
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 over 6 can helm boats and will normally be invited to participate in the more formal training at Moppy Camps and other activities once they are 7 or 8 years old. As full members, children have the opportunity to develop their sailing in a variety of boats 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.
With Full Membership to Salterns, you’ll have access between 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.
Due to lease restrictions there is a limit to the number of families the club can have as full members in any one year. Contact our Membership Secretary to find out if the club currently has space for new members.
