Family and Individual Membership Information

Families and individuals interested in BLYM's aims are warmly invited to apply for membership. One subscription covers all members of a family for 12 months. Boat owners may keep their own craft at BLYM's boat park for a small annual berthing fee, which includes unlimited use of the water at general sailing times. The BLYM fleet, comprising over 100 dinghies and powerboats is available for use by members on payment of a small fee.

BLYM membership entitles members to significantly discounted course fees, and a 25% discount of all chandlery retail prices from leading manufacturers.
