How To Join Or Register Your Interest
(Membership application displays are at the bottom of this page unless you are already a member and logged in.)
Join the CUCrC! Take advantage of the Freshers Fair to come along and talk to us – look for a dinghy or board outside and a large burgee banner inside. If you are not sure what sailing or windsurfing is really like, sign up for a taster session at Grafham – first Saturday and Sunday of the Michaelmas term. And come to the CUCrC Squash – details of time and place will be provided closer to the time by email, as well as on flyers at the Freshers Fair. If you cannot make these sessions, use the form on the Get In Touch page to register your specific interests on our emailing list.
To join the CUCrC, the current student membership fee is £50. There is no fee for non-student (Senior Affiliate) membership, but you need to be able to help the Club in some tangible way such as using your car to help with transport to and from Grafham. The only additional regular cost for sailing and windsurfing at Grafham is for transport to and from Grafham Water – normally £5 per return trip. For non-members there is a half-day membership fee of £10 when joining a Club trip to Grafham.
Eligibility to Join the CUCrC
Student Membership is open to registered students aged 18 or over (of Cambridge University, and elsewhere if full time and at a non-commercial institution). But please note the two membership application categories below – the 1st for Cambridge University students and the 2nd for students at other institutions. Non-Student (Senior Affiliate) Membership, with restricted sailing and windsurfing opportunities, is open to others associated with the University or with the City. Non-Student Membership is subject to General Committee confirmation and the member being able to help the Club in some tangible way. Only Student Ordinary members (CU students) have voting rights in Club Matters.
If you are a student you get unlimited sailing and windsurfing for a whole academic year (1 September – 31 August) for just £50. (‘Student’ means you are a registered student aged 18 or over on a full-time course of study for a first or higher degree at a non-commercial university or college of further education.) If you have already booked on a Taster Session or RYA Training Course you will get a discount of £10 on your membership fee.
If you are not a student, but have a car and can help with transport, or have good experience and can assist in some other tangible way, then we welcome you as a Senior Affiliate. There is no membership fee, but your application is subject to formal vetting. When you provide transport you are eligible to claim a mileage allowance. Furthermore, during the duties for which you volunteer, you will normally be able to take part in some sailing and windsurfing. The one major exception is the Taster Weekend (first weekend of Michaelmas Term), when we ask all Senior Affiliates with cars to help with transport. Please do NOT sign up for a taster session – we will contact you about providing transport.
Click on the ‘Add to basket’ buttons below for the membership category to which you are eligible and you will be taken straight to a Checkout page. At checkout you will be asked to confirm your acceptance of the Club’s membership requirements, if you have not already done so.
If you have already paid for a Taster Session, RYA Training course, trip, or Day Membership, login to access a discount on your membership fee. Otherwise use your existing login to avoid creating a duplicate account.
