  • Informal training by experienced members.
  • Opportunities to crew on Members' yachts or obtain crew for your own yacht from the Membership.
  • Eligibility for a warrant to wear the undefaced Blue Ensign.
  • Members may use the facilities of Hornet Services Sailing Club at Gosport and the Royal Air Force Yacht Club at the Hamble upon production of their Club e-Membership Card.
