How to join PSBSC
Membership of PSBSC is open to all regardless of sailing experience or whether or not you own a boat. Membership is based on an annual subscription and there is no joining fee. All members receive a copy of our annual handbook and, of course, have the opportunity to join in all club events, have access to club boats, all free of charge (unless otherwise specified). For the upcoming sailing season membership rates remain unchanged:
|Junior (under 18 years)||£20.00|
We prefer if you could pay your membership subscription by standing order, especially if you know you may want to be a club member for more than a year. The standing order form can be downloaded here. This needs to be printed off and sent to your own bank for processing. Alternatively, pay by BACS, cheque, or cash. Full payment details are all on the membership form.
Junior members. A parent or guardian needs to complete and sign the ordinary membership form. In additon, please complete the junior consent form which covers emergency contact information, and consent for medical treatment for your child if necessary. Click RYA TRAINING section for the Junior Consent Form.
Copies of the above forms can also be found in folders on the pin board in the Boat Shed.
Unsure about joining? Why not come along to a club night for a taster session? It's a great way to meet our members and get a feel for our activities before you commit. There should always be someone on hand to discuss joining and membership forms should also be available. We also have sailing taster sessions at our annual open day.
Just visiting? If you're just visiting Plockton and hoping to sail but do not wish to become a PSBSC member, you are still very welcome to join any of our races (see race calendar elsewhere on the website). However, please note that club boats will only be available for use by club members. Visitors wishing to participate should register at the timekeepers hut and complete a race entry / indemnity form before racing. There is also a small visitor's fee of £5 per person per race. Please also review our racing and sailing directions, which includes some local rules.
