Joining CVLSC

Membership places are currently available at Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club

New members please apply online here:

CVLSC Subscriptions

We recommend that you visit the club to meet some of our members and see what we have to offer as we would be delighted to show you around. All membership applications are subject to an approval process which can take a few weeks – the club is run by volunteer members. You will be kept up to date by email regarding the status of your application.

Membership runs from 1st April each year but you are welcome to join at any stage during the year.

Any dinghy kept or sailed at the club will need to be registered with the club and a boat fee paid as a part of your membership. You will be allocated a boat space in the dinghy park by the Dinghy Park Manager. We have club boats available for hire, so if you don’t own a boat, you don’t need to buy one to join the club; you can take time to decide which boat is most appropriate for you.

Frostbite Membership

CVLSC offers members of other sailing clubs that don’t offer racing during the winter the ability to join the club temporarily for our Frostbite series which runs from Jan to Mar and includes 2 races per Sunday (am and pm). The fee is £50 per sailor (£25 per junior) plus £100 refundable gate deposit key. You are also entitled to leave your boat at the club for the duration of your membership. Applications will be available online nearer the season.
