Application to join Whitefriars Sailing Club
First of all, thank you for your interest in the Club!
If you have not already seen it, you can download a copy of the Club brochure here, which explains what the club can offer you in terms of sailing and boat facilities and training. It also describes the different types of membership subscriptions available ranging from Family to Social Memberships. If you have any query relating to this then do contact the Membership Secretary but if you are happy to proceed with your application then read on.
As part of the application, we'd like to know a little about you: your occupation or sailing experience can help us identify activities in the club where you may be able to offer help. If you wish to apply as a family then the system will automatically collate your details using your email address as a reference.
Our online membership system provider, WebCollect, holds all of your personal details securely for the Club: you can read more about that here. Our online payments are processed through Paypal but you do not need to have a PayPal account because, as a guest, Paypal will accept nearly all bank or credit cards. Alternatively, you can pay by cheque or cash and those options are shown before you authorise any payment.
Clicking on the Sign up link below takes you to the WebCollect home page where you click on the Browse Subscriptions button. Then you are guided to the choice of membership subscription for you to add to your “basket”. When you proceed through checkout, completing membership and subscription forms along the way, we ask you to agree to our Terms & Conditions. At the checkout, instead of being asked to provide payment details, you will submit an application order that goes to the Membership Secretary.
The Membership Secretary approves your membership application based on meeting new applicants on a club visit or talking to them over the phone. Once approved you will be emailed a link to complete the order by making payment.
On receiving your payment you will be sent a membership pack containing an acceptance letter, a Club Handbook, a Members Guidebook, and a membership card. The latter has the padlock codes to allow entry to Whitefriars Lane and the Club compound.
Click here to go to the Sign up page.
That's all there is to it! Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing at the club.
You are welcome to visit the club when we are open. See the website for our calendar to make sure there is someone there to help and answer you questions. Alternatively email or phone the Membership Secretary.
