The Club owns both the clubhouse site and much of the Mere, and this enables subscription rates to be kept at a very low level. The rates for the current season are shown below.
If you interested in joining Budworth Sailing Club you are welcome to come and visit us to get a feel for the Club. The best time is a Sunday afternoon when there are lots of members around.
If you already sail one of the classes we race at Budworth, just contact the relevant class captain for more details about that class. Contact information is in the “Our Fleets” section.
However, if you want to try the sport, or are fairly new to sailing and maybe not committed to one class of boat, then you could consider joining initially as a crewing member, using your first season to familiarise yourself with the Club and the different classes of boat before making your final choice. Crewing members are most welcome and class captains can advise on the crewing opportunities in their fleets.
During the season members are required to carry out two or three duties, either running the racing, manning one of the rescue boats or supervising in the galley. Training is available, so do not think you will be out of your depth. A rota of duties is published in the Club Handbook and on the member part of the web site as part of the racing programme. This is not onerous, is a pleasant way of meeting other members, and understanding the wider aspects of race management.
