How to join Minima Yacht Club

Membership of the Club is open to all 

Minima is an inclusive club run by its members, for its members. There are plenty of opportunities to help with the running of the Club, from driving the launches, running races, planning trips, club maintenance, help on the bar or with teas. We all volunteer for duties. 

The upstairs clubroom and bar is open to all members on Wednesday and Sunday evenings throughout the year. In addition there are a variety of social events including our splendid Regatta BBQ (with live jazz band), international themed nights and even a live theatre night. Our balcony overlooking the river catches the afternoon sun to perfection!
