Join Us

Here at Whitefriars Sailing Club, we welcome new members all year round.

Our membership year runs from 1st April, but if you join part way through the year, you’ll only pay membership for the months left until the next full
renewal.

To begin the process of joining us, click on the main category of membership below. This will take you to Loveadmin to fill in some forms. You don’t have to pay anything at this stage. Or you can email the membership team if you have any burning questions at this stage (although there’s plenty of chances coming up in the process to ask about anything).

You can add extras such as berths, kayak racks and camping etc as you go through the system. 

Then sit back and wait for us to be in touch. (Please remember as willing volunteers who are reluctantly employed, this may not be instant!)

One of the flag officers will call you to answer any questions you may have. The next step is to arrange a time to take a tour of the lake, boat park and clubhouse. We are more than happy to arrange this in advance and we all love to show off our beautiful club to potential new members!

Hopefully, this visit will swing it for you. Then we press the ‘Go’ button on the Loveadmin system, you can tweak any membership categories, finalise your
payment and congratulate yourself on a great choice made. If you’re really keen to get going, this whole joining process can take less than a week.

There’s lots of information on this website about prices (link); boat hire - if you don’t already own a dinghy; training courses that we run as a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) recognised training centre; groups (link to groups page) such as JuniorsSailability, Women on the Water and Radio Controlled; and Racing during our friendly, well-attended race series.

We look forward to receiving your application and seeing you enjoy time on and around Whitefriars’ lake.
