Applying for membership

Many of our prospective Members have been introduced by current Members and will meet other Members & Committee Members at racing or social events.

Others who are interested in joining but do not know a current member can be invited to the Club and meet a Flag Officer or Committee Member to discuss membership.

All prospective Members are invited to join the Club for four months, this is known as provisional membership.

We ask that provisional Members take part in a range of Club activities during their four  month provisional membership to ensure that Club membership is right for them before moving forward with full membership.

Children of Full Members aged 16 years who wish to take part in powerboat racing activities are subject to their own individual membership fee for licensing purposes.
