Policies and Procedures


When you join the Club, you agree to comply with all the Club Policies and Procedures. Members introducing or receiving visiting sailors or windsurfers must ask them to complete a day sailing form or open entry form; these forms also include a declaration agreeing to comply with Club Policies and Procedures, plus a statement on limitations of the club’s liability.

This page contains the Club Policies and Procedures. The authority for the main rules is the Club’s Constitution (see section 1 of this document); this can only be changed by a Special General Meeting.

The Club Policies and Procedures have been developed over the years to ensure members can participate in Club activities in a enjoyable, and safe manner. The Club’s Management Committee is empowered to write and amend Policies and Procedures. They are reviewed annually.

The Club has agreed that its Policies and Procedures, including those concerning safety, sailing matters and training, will be consistent with the guidelines of the Royal Yachting Association (RYA).
