New Membership Enquiries & COVID-19 Restrictions
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we have very limited access to Club resources at present.
Learn to Row: As a result we are not running any Learn to Row/Sculling courses at present. This will be reviewed in line with any easement of COVID-19 restrictions.
Experienced Scullers: Given that our Single Scull resources are in high demand, we are unable to take any further applications for membership at the present time from experienced scullers. The only exceptions to this are
(i) private 1x boat owners (subject to racking availability) or
(ii) a same household 2x, where applicants have proven sculling experience.
If you would like to apply for membership despite the above, we would be pleased to keep your details and contact you once places become available. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Applications and Prices
BBRC welcomes new members and uses an online system called WebCollect to manage the various membership categories.
On the Club's WebCollect page https://webcollect.org.uk/bbrc you will find details of all the available subscriptions and associated prices.
BBRC’s policies regarding membership fees
The Membership Year runs from 1 May to 30 April.
Membership fees are due promptly at the beginning of each year, or on joining the Club.
In advance of a new membership year, the Committee may allow a reduced rate Early Bird Membership Fee to encourage prompt payment. The reduced rate may be withdrawn at the Committee’s discretion.
Proportionate reductions are normally given if members join part-way through a year.
Payment plans can be arranged, at the Treasurer’s discretion, for families with multiple Club members only.
The Club is entirely volunteer-run. BBRC does not offer payment to members who contribute to the Club, whether by coaching, driving a launch, or in any other way. Making a contribution in the best way you can is part and parcel of being a good Club member.
Members in good standing may apply for permission to store a private boat at Bewl. BBRC will not allocate a rack to a person who is not a member of the Club.
Important notes. All racking allocations are wholly at BBRC’s discretion; and are subject to availability and payment of the current racking fees. BBRC may not be able to meet all requests for private racking space. Boats are stored at entirely owner’s risk and must be insured accordingly. Evidence of insurance will be required. Any payment of racking fees before a rack is allocated is provisional only and will be refunded if no allocation is made.
