For all members the annual Membership Subscriptions run from February 1st of each year and end on January 31st the following year.
For new members, some reduction to the Subscription rates are made from July onwards each year to take into account the reduction in opportunity to sail and use the Club facilities. Details of this will be provided at the time of joining.
Once a member, you not only have access to our fantastic Club house, but can also sail boats from our hire fleet, subject to suitable experience.
If you do not have the necessary experience, or wish to improve your sailing we can also help you with our extensive range of Training Courses.

All Boats sailed at Carsington must be Insured for third party liability to a minimum value of £2,000,000.
Although we are very fortunate to have a small team of staff, who work very hard to keep on top of the tasks in and around the clubhouse, not all of the work can be done by them alone.
We therefore rely on willing volunteers to bridge the gaps to keep the Club running smoothly.
Daytime on Wednesdays and Thursdays is when this team of willing and able volunteers visit the Club to carry out any number of tasks. When the Club is closed to sailing in January, volunteers join in to help with Clubhouse maintenance and decorating.
If you have any particular skills or just willing and would like to join this team, please inform the office staff or any of the Flag Officers; we are always on the look-out for people who can help!
