I joined the club over two years ago and have had some great days sailing since. Members made me feel welcome and I soon got to know quite a few people by getting involved with some of the Cruising events. There is always a pair of hands to help when one arrives at a destination and the organisers always make sure we know what is happening and when. Best value for money ever and plenty of events.

I joined Shotley Point Yacht Club earlier this year and was immediately warmly welcomed into the fold and involved in the many activities on their calendar. I like the informality, the friendliness, not to mention the very reasonable subscription!
