Annual D/D payment
If you choose annual there is a 5% discount for direct debit payment before Feb 28th. You can sign up now but payment for your annual membership fee will not be taken until the end of February.
Monthly D/D payment (only available until 31st January)
If you choose monthly there is no 5% annual D/D discount but your fee is split into 12 monthly payments and the first direct debit payment must be in January. It is possible to choose monthly direct debit up until 31st January. By choosing monthly D/D the member is committing to paying their annual membership over twelve months with no option to cancel early. In the event of early cancellation the Club can charge the member what they owe plus an admin fee or a re-joining fee of £140 if the person wants to re-join within 12 months, or may decline the option to pay monthly in future.
If you are joining SHSC partway through the year the following discount off the full membership fee will apply:
- after 1st June – 75% of fee payable… Enter coupon code JUNE25 at checkout
- after 1st August – 50% of fee payable… Enter coupon code AUGUST50 at checkout
- after 1st November – fees are as normal and include membership for the whole of the following year.
It is a condition of membership that all members perform at least three duties per year. These cover Officer of the Day, Assistant Officer of the Day, Safety boat helm/crew and Galley. Duties are assigned based on experience so the lesser experienced members are not expected to run races.
