How to join our Fort William sailing club
You can join Lochaber Yacht Club at any time of the year. New active members are most welcome. We have a large family membership with lots of young sailors. We’ve got a few old sea-salts too. We have social events and the club house makes an excellent venue.
If you’d like to speak with someone before joining our sailing club, best thing to do is contact a committee member (committee-contacts) for details. You are also welcome to come down to the club to see what’s going on. During the summer months, Monday evenings are for Soling and Keelboat sailing races, Thursday evenings are club nights and if conditions are right we can arrange for you to have a go. During the Autumn and early Winter some club members sail on a Sunday afternoon.
To join straightaway, download our LYC Application Form (link).
If you are a UHI Student and would like to join the sailing club per Semester, please click here to complete a simple application form.
Please complete the form, then photograph it or scan it and email it to our Membership Secretary. You can also drop your form off at the clubhouse. You can contact the Membership Secretary by email or phone 07760 166 970. On the application form we need you to add the name of a proposer. If you don’t already know a club member to ask them to be your proposer, just contact the secretary for help.
Gocardless for membership payments
Our preferred method of payment for membership is Gocardless, a convenient online Direct Debit process, which makes it simple to pay and involves minimum work for our committee to manage our memberships. Other methods of payment are possible but these will involve a lot of someone’s time and will not allow us to see at a glance, who are paid members of our club. We will send you a link to our Gocardless account where you can make your membership payment.
