Access to the Club for Non Members and New Membership Applications. Updated 3rd July 2020

Although the Club has opened certain areas to its Members we are currently closed to Visitors and Guests unless they are being shown around the club or attending to meet an owner of a boat for sale. This is due to doing everything we can to protect our Members whilst on site.  We are closely monitoring the Government updates and hope that in the future this restriction can be lifted.  We still welcome new membership applications at this time and can arrange to show same household applicants around the club grounds and from July the 4th 2020 inside club house itself.  Unfortunately due to the current situation we will also not be running our yearly Open Day.  We thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we have to follow these restrictions.
