How to Join
Dear Prospective Member
Thank you for your interest in membership of Itchenor Sailing Club. We are a family club with members aged from 8 to 80+, and all members of the family are encouraged to join and get involved.
New for 2018 is our 2000 project. This offers a programme for those who want to enjoy dinghy sailing in a relaxed atmosphere without the challenges of serious competitive sailing. Itchenor Sailing Club has always been known for its top quality dinghy and keelboat racing but has not previously offered a package specifically formulated to be attractive to the less experienced sailor. The new programme offers a mixed schedule of training, cruising, fun racing, and regattas each weekend allowing families, couples and individuals to have fun whilst developing their sailing skills. There is no need to own your own boat for this. The Club’s fleet of new 2000 dinghies provides a great way to take part. These are available for Club members to book by the day, or half day from Wednesday to Sunday throughout the season.
The Club runs a busy sailing and social programme for sailors of all ages. We have a thriving Mirror fleet for children, with lots of learn to sail and training activities, as well as racing throughout the season. Older children usually progress into Toppers and International 420s. From 2018 we will also be including the RS Feva and Laser Radial classes in our Junior and Youth programme. For adults who wish to race dinghies we run racing for Single‐handers, RS200s, RS800s, and International 14s. For those interested in day keelboat racing we organise racing for Swallows, Sunbeams and XODs. We also offer a comprehensive programme of training courses for both sail and power.
The racing season starts at the end of March and there is racing every weekend until early November. In addition there is regular weekday evening racing for keelboats and a “Points Week” in the summer. We also run a very popular Junior Fortnight in August, together with other organised youth and junior events.
All this is supported by a bar and restaurant, which has undergone a substantial upgrade over the past few years. We also have a number of bedrooms for Members and guests who wish to stay at the Club over a weekend, or longer.
Joining is easy. The only criteria is that to become a Full Member you must be actively involved in sailing. For details of all the membership categories please see the enclosed “How to Join ISC” guide.
We also have an Associate Membership category for anyone interested in paddle‐sports, particularly participating in sea rowing, stand‐up paddle‐boarding or kayaking.
If you are interested in joining and would like to take a look around, please do let me know and I would be delighted to show you around the Club. I can also introduce you to the Captain of a class in which you may be interested in participating.
