Joining Barnt Green Sailing Club is very easy - we are a very welcoming club and do not have any set criteria for membership, just an interest in sailing!
We welcome new members of all sailing abilities and as an RYA Training Centre we pride ourselves on providing training for dinghy cruising and racing to RYA standards for juniors and adults. We have a fleet of club boats which members can use including Laser Pico, Laser Vago, Lark, Optimist and Cadet class dinghies.

Election to the Club
The rules of the club mean that new members are only officially elected to join after a completed application has been received and approved by the BGSC Committee. This is, however, generally a formality - and you are free to participate in club events as soon as the Club receives payment along with your application. Once confirmed, you will receive a club Welcome Pack and a copy of the club rules.

Barnt Green Sailing Club reserves the right to refuse membership.
