Join the club

It's easy to join - just fill out this online form. You don't need a boat straightaway. Borrow a club boat, or crew for another member. When you are ready to buy a boat it doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg, there are lots of second-hand bargains to be had.

If you've walked around the lake and often fancied yourself bobbing about in one of the boats then what are you waiting for - join today and you'll be sailing by the weekend.
