So, you are thinking of joining Sale Cruising Club?
We describe ourselves as a ‘self help’ club. This doesn’t mean that we just help ourselves, it means that within the club we also help each other.
Every job in Sale Cruising Club is voluntary. No one is paid and each and every member is expected to contribute something in addition to paying their fees every year.
This ‘self help’ can come in various forms and quantities. The clubhouse and club facilities plus the moorings are always in need of maintenance and improvement. You may want to practice your painting or gardening skills but don’t worry if you feel that you are not up to these tasks. It could be that you make the best cup of tea on the cut, the people doing the jobs mentioned will always welcome a brew!
We also organise our own social events. For most of these food is prepared in our modern kitchen, so catering and pot-washing skills come in very handy. The bar would need manning, glasses collected etc. All this helps to lower the costs of boating & socialising with fellow members.
A varied cruising calendar is laid on each year by our appointed Commodore. Our usual cruises take place over any given weekend and many local spots along the Bridgewater Canal are visited. In the summer, at least one “Holiday” cruise is arranged either by our Commodore or a group of members which usually takes us further afield to places such as Chester, Liverpool and the Cheshire or Four Counties rings.
Our moorings are always in high demand, with a waiting list in operation but please contact us for more information.
