Membership of Flushing Sailing Club is open to anyone interested in the sport of sailing.

Boat ownership is not a requirement of membership.

The membership subscription is modest, and can be even more modest if you take advantage of the early-bird renewal, which attracts a reduction of £10 on all categories of membership.

The membership year runs from January 1st, but even if you haven't renewed (despite the many reminders you will have been sent) you may still vote at the AGM held at the end of March.

If you choose to join late in the year (after October) your membership runs until the end of the following year (15 months for the price of 12! what a bargain.), but you will have missed a whole summer of glorious sailing.

Catogory Full rate Reduced rate
Single (adults over 18) £70 £60
Family (including all children aged 25 years or younger) £80 £70
Pensioner (70 and over) £50 £40
Pensioner family (both 70 and over) £60 £50
Outport (Single adult over 18) £50 £40
Outport family (including all children aged 25 or younger) £60 £50

Any member renewing their membership before February 1st is entitled to a reduced rate as listed above.

Most of the categories are self explanatory. An Outport member is a person domiciled beyond the county boundaries.

We also have up to four Life members. Election to Life membership is a mark of esteeem and is limited to members who have distinguished themselves through services to sailing or by long and meritorious service to the Club.

Any member of the RYA, or a member of any club affiliated to the RYA is an Associate member.

Once you have joined you will receive a membership pack which includes the SI booklet, the fixtures card, a membership card, and if there are any left, tide tables. You will also receive our monthly newsletter (sent by email).

Problems, queries?

If you are uncertain which membership category you should be in, or whether you qualify for a reduction, please contact our .

Need a membership form?

Membership forms are available here. Note that existing members need not fill in yet another form, although we really do want to know if your details have changed in any material way.

Try before you buy

If you are considering becoming a member please come along to the Club on a Tuesday evening throughout the year, or a Saturday afternoon during the sailing season (April to late October). Don't be shy, come and talk to us.

Want to race?

If you have a boat, you need to complete the Race Registration & entry form. If you don't have a boat, come along and start talking to people. A number of helms are happy to take you along, even if you have limited experience. If you have sailing skills, you will become very popular. Alternatively, ask to be included on the want to crew list.
