Sailing Membership Packages 2017 – To suit you
Joining Burwain Sailing Club is easy, flexible and great value. We have a wide range of membership packages to suit you and your intended use of club facilities. For example, membership for a single adult with their own boat is only £185 per annum, which is as little as £3.56 per week!!!
The membership is even lower if you don’t own your own boat and starts from only £125 per annum for an adult (only £2.40 per week). If you want to join the club mid-way through the year then we also have special reduced rates (see below).
Payments of subscriptions, boat fees etc, are due on the 1st January and must be received by the membership secretary no later than the 31st March.
Lapsed members whose boat is not removed from club premises when their membership ceases will be charged £60 per year or part of a year until their boat is removed.

Membership fees for Single, Dual & Family include all race fees and storage of one boat and one trailer.
Joining Membership Mid year
The club has special membership rates for new members wanting to join mid way through the season. We recognise that a new member joining in July should not expect to pay the full rate with half the season sailed. The club has therefore devised a sliding scale of membership fees, with the fees reducing in proportion to the number of months left in the year. For new members wanting to join in October there are also two options:
- Pay for the last 3 months of the year. OR
- Combine the last 3 months payment with a full membership for the following year. (A saving of £32).
