Happy New Year to Pagham Yacht Club members

March 1st is the renewal date for current members. The more renewals received during the month of February the easier it is to administer the applications. Last year we had around 350 members for the year, of which 100 were child/youth members. A fantastic effort, but we hope to add to that amount this coming year.

At the AGM in November it was agreed to increase the membership and boat park fees, by a small amount, these can be viewed online HERE on this Membership pages. You can also download the membership application form and either send it completed to me by email at membership@paghamyachtclub.com or send to our postal address or deliver by hand at the Club (and stay for a few drinks). Please consider paying online through BACS, details can be found on the membership application form. Each year the numbers paying fees by BACS has increased and we are keen to keep the trend going.

New members are welcome and will find full details of how to apply on the membership application forms.

 

We all look forward to meeting you at the Club
