Ashdown Boats taking a breather in St Peter Port
Broadly speaking, new members would fit into one of 3 categories:
Novice or little experience
If you have no experience at all of sailing you can learn the ropes in a relaxed environment.
Boat owner (experienced or not)
If you own a boat you get to enjoy the company of other like minded sailors. If you wish you can be put in touch with known & reliable crew to join you on cruises.
If you can sail but don't own a boat ASC gives you sailing on the south coast without the costs of chartering.
The costs for all are minimal, and every member builds up useful sailing contacts. Membership is only twenty pounds per year with no joining fee and, when sailing, food, drink and mooring costs are split.
