Club information

We meet on Wednesday and Friday mornings at the lake on the “Care Ashore” Seamen’s Retirement Home on the Springbok Estate. We have use of the lake, lounge, bar facilities (when open) and toilets in the main house during these times. Free parking is close by. 

The club is open to new members where the cost is only £35 per annum. Members are very friendly and will offer every assistance to those starting out or who simply wish to try out a boat. Friendly model yacht racing for DF65 and DF95 is normally arranged on the first Friday of the month and at other times on an ad-hoc basis.

Anyone interested in joining can simply come along and introduce themselves any Friday morning. If the pond appears deserted, due to heavy rain for example, you will probably find a small group of us in a corner of the bar or later on, if the sun is shining, on the terrace outside.

Springbok is a lovely location and worth attending for a tranquil morning if for no other reason.
