Membership

Membership forms can be obtained from either the club’s website www.tenbysailingclub.org.uk or at the club itself. The membership rates for this current year remained unchanged as agreed by the members at the AGM. There are many advantages to being a member a few of which are discounted bar prices, access to showers and toilets on the harbour and priority for social events, please see the website for full details. To this end anyone who is in possession of a changing room/showers fob that have not renewed their membership by the end of April, they will be deactivated.

Members only Lounge

At the A.G.M. last November which does seem so long ago now, the members voted for and passed a member only lounge. The committee are pleased to say that the top room has been going through an extensive refurbishment and is nearing completion. The volunteers headed up by Martin Munroe and Dan Jackson have done a sterling job, not only in the decorating but securing grants to help in the project. This will be a space for members to get away from the mayhem of a busy bar to relax and maybe have a bite to eat from The Harbour Restaurant.

Commodores Quiz

This year we are raising funds for a Defibrillator to be sited outside the club at the bottom of the stone steps by the big doors. Due to the location this will also have to be a heated cabinet, the defib will then be listed on the local network and will benefit the wider community and visitors alike as there will be a defib situated on the harbour. Due to the location the defib box will have to be a heated one for obvious reasons, and they carry the cost of £1300 complete.

So please come down to the next quiz Saturday 30th March at 1930 to have a bit of fun while raising money for our Defib. Cost of the entry to the quiz is £5 for a team of up to six people or £1 if you think you can go it alone. There will be a league running for the whole year up to the final in November, you don’t have to be part of the league just come for a laugh whilst raising money. Alongside the quiz there will be a raffle, all prize donations will be gratefully received.

If anyone would like to donate to the Defib Fund please get in contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
