All prospective members, whether new applicants or ex members wishing to rejoin, must fill in a Membership Application Form available from the club Membership Secretary (see this website contacts page).
CVLSC encourages all members to own their own dinghy but the club does have some boats available for the novice to try out. It is possibly more important to establish the type of sailing one wants to undertake before purchasing your dinghy.
Our total membership is controlled by our lease and this does lead to there being a waiting list. The waiting time is influenced by many factors and it would be advisable to seek the current situation from the current membership secretary.
The simple answer is no.
The club attempts to encompass most forms of sailing tuition - from the raw beginner to the experienced sailor who wants to improve his/her skills. All courses are RYA approved and certified.
