Fees

Sailing at Ranelagh is not an expensive sport. If you are interested in becoming a member, please use the contact form.

There is no one-off joining fee.

Membership fees for a full year are £72 for single, £84 for a family and £25 for students. Social members, who do not sail actively, also pay £25 for the full year. Membership fees are payable at the beginning of the calendar year.

Berth rent in our boat house is £10 per month or £120 per year. However, the club wants to encourage a minimum of participation in sailing activities. Boat owners who sail less than 10 times per year (including safety boat duties) will get charged an additional storage fee of £240 (= 2x regular berth rent) in the following calendar year.

To store a trailer in the trailer park we charge £12 per year. We only accept dinghies up to 14 feet in length and less than 100kg in weight.

Club boats can be hired for £5 per race per person. First come first served.

The table below indicates what fees members have to pay in the first year, depending on their joining date. For members joining the club in the last three months of the year, the following year's membership fee is included.
