Full Membership

To join simple fill in the membership form below. We’ll contact you with the bank details and reference numbers you’ll need to pay the fee. Once the funds have cleared we’ll post a car sticker and a key to the changing rooms and kit storage as well as the codes for the gate locks.

The cost to join, including the one-off joining fee is:

  • Single adult at £135
  • Family membership at £170

This includes third part liability insurance which covers you for use of your own kit and all club kit, on the club lakes (see below for Insurance cover). The initial membership includes a one-off fee which includes the cost of getting new keys cut. Membership runs from 1st May each year.

We offer 50% discounted membership between October and April. If you are an experienced windsurfer and join after the 1st January you get a bonus of up to 4 months free.

A family consists of one or two adults and their children up to the age of 18, living with them.

Carsington Membership add on

We have struck a deal with Carsingtion Sailing Club to allow TWC members to use the facilities there. This includes car parking, changing rooms with hot showers, and sailing on the large reservoir. This is a great opportunity for club members to get an introduction to sailing on larger water. Please refer to their website for opening times.

  • Carsington membership add on + £80 per adult

Note: You will need your own insurance to sail on Carsington, we would recommend joining the RYA which includes the necessary 3rd party insurance.

Annual Membership Renewal

Annual renewal fees are cheaper as they don’t include the one-off joining fee. Renewal notices are sent out in February before the AGM.

  • Single adult at £105
  • Family membership at £140
  • Carsington add on membership + £80


The club RYA insurance covers all members and visitors for sailing on the lakes. This is 3rd party cover and covers the club equipment, members equipment and accidental personal injury. If anyone is interested in a boring legalistic read then we can send a copy of the policy by email.

Obviously if you want to use your equipment elsewhere then you’ll need either 3rd your own 3rd party cover or comprehensive cover. It’s a requirement for sailing at Carsington or Rutland and officially for SUPing on canals and rivers.

Another option is to join the RYA or British Canoeing. RYA costs £65 and includes insurance for windsurfing. British Canoeing costs £45 and includes insurance as well as a waterways licence – so useful for SUPers.
