For his contribution to sailing at Durleigh and the community, it gives us great pleasure in announcing that Pete Branson has been awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership to Durleigh Sailing Club. Although Pete is not in the best of health at the moment, we wish him all the best and look forward to seeing him at the club very soon.

In order to qualify as CASC (Community Amateur Sports Club) 50% of our members must attend at least twelve times per year. As we have to be able to prove this, from now forward please can EVERYONE sign in EVERY TIME they come onto club premises.
If we cannot do this, we will lose our CASC status and its 80% business rate relief , this would mean having to increase the fees by 25%.
