Joining Oxford Sailing Club

801239 orig

Thank you for your interest in joining Oxford Sailing Club.

What we do:

As well as our strong dinghy racing fleet and established windsurfer group, OSC offers plenty of confidence-building activities aimed at newly-qualified sailors, both adults and youth, as well as those returning to sailing after a gap. Activities are mostly weekday evenings starting in mid-late April. We even have a model yacht group (DragonForce 65). Club Racing currently runs as two races back-to-back on Sundays and one on Wednesday evenings from April. If you are a beginner looking for courses please see , our RYA training partners at Farmoor.

Membership options:

OSC offers a range of membership subscriptions. There are discounts for young people, students, OAPs and regular safety boat drivers - see below. Please contact the membership team with any questions, but if you are happy to proceed with your application then read on. If you've recently done an RYA Dinghy Level 2 or Start Windsurfing course, a special offer declining in price each month is available - you an see this "RYA Course Attendees" membership on the application page. Please ask if in doubt.


You can arrange payment online using the GoCardless Setup link by (direct debit is definitely our preferred method), either as a one off payment or, for full Adult and Family subscriptions, monthly (select the "instalments" option once you have created the invoice). You can also select BACS for upfront payments, but these require manual tracking, versus the automated receipting that GoCardless offers. Note that the mandate only operates when you confirm a renewal, make a session booking or we process your joining subscription or we renew on your behalf (before which we'll try to contact you if you are late renewing).

Take the three steps to join:

1) Register to create an account or login to your account;

2) Enter your postal and email address and 'phone number, and select a membership type;

3) Tell us what your main interest is and what certification or experience level you have, so we can ensure you get sailing at the right level and introduce you to the right groups and activities;

4) Submit your application and await approval, then confirmation and payment options. The GoCardless setup (direct debit) route is our preferred payment method. Once membership is confirmed, please add to your profile an In Case Of Emergency name and number, a rough date of birth and change the default contact setting to "Members" from "Private".
