Become a member of the Hereford Sailing Club

We welcome new members to The Hereford Sailing Club.

New members may book Auburn Lass, our Dehler 39 foot yacht, for days, weekends or entire weeks as soon as they become members. To go sailing, they need to become, or take with them, a club approved skipper. They also must take a competent first mate.

For the summer of 2017, we have also arranged a club sailing weekend for the 9,10,11 June, and a summer club cruise from 18 – 26 August. The boat will be based in Plymouth. Prospective and existing members are welcome to join us at any time during these events. just email alex@dufort.com and let him know when you would like to join the boat. Costs are shared.

It is the Club’s policy to provide members who wish to use the boat with a club skipper and a crew if necessary for any planned trip.

Members may also use qualified skippers from outside The Club providing they are approved by The Club committee, and become temporary members for the period of the booking. The costs of using Auburn Lass are usually shared between the people using the boat.

Most of the information you need will be available on our website: you might be particularly interested in the Club Rules, which set out in detail the purposes of the Club and members’ use of Auburn Lass.

To become a member of the Hereford Sailing Club, simply download and fill in a membership application form and email it to Andy Sommerville hsc.andy@tiffanymail.com
