Datchet is a members club, run by the members for the members, so there are responsibilities and duties:

 

  • All full members are eligible for Council membership and have voting rights; a maximum of two members of a family membership have the same rights.
  • Members agree to do two club duties per annum and the choices are race officer or race team, patrol boat coxswain or crew, officer of the day and work party volunteer. Members may buyout for £100 pa.
  • Members may buy a crew/helm pass for £180 to allow them to sail with a non member crew or helmsman.

 

The normal membership year lasts from 1st  April to the 31st March.  We also encourage winter membership from 1st October to 31st March.

Winter members are not full members and so are not required to do club duties.   The winter membership fee includes entry to the Winter Warm Up series.
