The Royal Southern Academy
Academy membership is available for 18-25 year olds and is very affordable at just £62 for the year. Your membership fee gives you access to all of the club's facilities as well as the opportunity to enter club events. The Academy hosts a wide range of events, both sailing and social throughout the year, and gives you the chance to get to know other like minded people.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Academy and hope to see you around the Club house soon.

The club owns three 2018 bought J/70 sports boats, which younger members are encouraged to take advantage of! They are available to rent for sailing, training and racing throughout the year and are great for members who don't own their own boat but are looking to get out on the water, keeping sailing exciting and competitive all year round.
We are looking to run a plethora of social events in 2019 to enable our like-minded younger members to get together and enjoy all the club has to offer together.
Members can join our Facebook group where younger members sailing and social opportunities are publicised and interaction is encouraged.
