Lewes Rowing Club
Sailing, Powerboats, Canoeing and Rowing
Lewes Rowing Club (Sail and Power) is a private club, owned, maintained and managed by its members.
It's purpose is to enable members to pursue their interest in boating on the River Ouse and beyond. Please note: As of today (9 August 2018) the Club is unable to accept any new applications for Full Membership or Associate Membership (Paddle) until further notice. This is due to the Club reaching capacity for the storage of new Members' boats. We hope to be able to reopen applications for membership as space becomes available but until such time we will operate a waiting list. We are still accepting applications for Associate Boat and Associate Rowing memberships
Please complete all sections of the application form – incomplete applications will be not be accepted. Completed application forms should be emailed to the Membership Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Categories of Membership
As from May 2018 there are two broad membership categories: Full Member and Associate Member, which were approved at the Annual General Meeting of the Club in May 2018.
Full Members must be boat owners, for example a rowing boat, powerboat, sailing boat, canoe or kayak. Full members have voting rights on club matters and must pay a larger annual fee. New Full Members must serve a one-year probationary period and must pay a joining fee. The number of Full Members in the Club is limited by the available space for storing Members’ boats.
Associate Members join the Club on an annually renewable membership. Associate Members do not pay a joining fee and pay an annual fee that is less than that of Full Members. There are three categories of Associate membership:
Associate Members B (Boat) are associated with a Full Member’s boat. They can use the boat when the Full Member is present and can use Club facilities.
Associate Members P (Paddle) is for new members who wish to use and base their paddle craft (canoe/kayak/paddle board/small rowing boat) at the Club. There is a limit to the number of new members in this category that the Club can accommodate at present.
Associate Members R (Rowers) is for new members who wish to participate in rowing in the Club’s boats but do not own wish to base a boat at the Club. There is a limit to the number of new members in this category that the Club can accommodate at present.
