The club is always keen to recruit new members of any age who have an interest in getting on to the water at Manningtree and taking part in Club activities. Normally applicants are proposed and seconded by established Club members, but if you are new to the area or do not know any members, contact the Membership Secretary and an interview can be arranged.

All members are expected, from time to time, to contribute to the running and maintenance of the club and its facilities.

Download Application Form

Please send this form to the Membership Secretary with the joining fee. It has to be posted in the clubhouse
for at least a week.

Your application will be considered at the next monthly meeting of the General Committee. The Committee may require further information, in which case you will be contacted to arrange an interview.

If your membership is approved you will be notified by post and the current annual membership fee will be requested. Your membership will start from receipt of your membership remittance. The subscription period runs from 1 April to 31 March the following year; renewals are requested with AGM notices in February.

Subscriptions of applicants approved after the end of the sailing season cover membership for the following year. Initial membership is on a temporary basis for one year.

It would be useful to know what your present or past occupation is or was (and that of your spouse) so that we might ask your advice on where best we can seek expertise. This would not mean giving professional advice which breached the rules of your professional association or which laid you open to any redress.
