Benefits of BTOSC membership

  • We organise a programme of events every year that usually includes:
    • Training
    • Cruising events in the Solent
    • Some cruises are multi-yacht club rallys that involve a meal ashore
    • Some cruises elsewhere in the UK
    • Racing (subject to demand)
  • We are a non-profit organization with low overheads so we can offer sailing, racing and training events at an affordable price
  • The club underwrites the security deposit for charters so the crew is only responsible for paying the first £100 of any damage
  • We have a website available to all and occasional  newsletters to members
  • We offer the members the opportunity to organise club events
  • We offer aspiring skippers the opportunity to become club skippers
