Why join

Look out for our Burgee along the Medina River

The Medina Mariners Association welcomes new members, and will be very pleased to receive enquiries and applications from anyone who enjoys boating in particular or other leisure activities or, indeed, anyone who is just interested in being a member of a charity that seeks to protect and enhance the opportunity for leisure activity in an attractive estuary environment.

The Association offers a number of facilities that may be of interest to prospective members that are set in an attractive waterfront position adjacent to the Folly Inn, these being offered at very competitive fees and charges. In addition, if you just wish to be a member of the Association, membership fees are very reasonable. The Association also arranges social events and, of course, sailing events, dinghy racing and cruising rallies in particular. One of the traditions of the Association is that those members who berth on the river fly their yellow and red Association burgees at all times, so that members can keep an eye on each others’ boats as they pass by.

In addition, the Association actively seeks to monitor planning applications for developments that may be detrimental to leisure activity within the Medina Estuary, and seeks to liaise with statutory bodies such as the Isle of Wight Council and Cowes Harbour Commission to ensure the best interests of leisure users of the area are properly looked after.

The Association has a reciprocal arrangement with Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club, East Cowes Sailing Club, Newport Rowing Club and Cowes Sailability Club. Cruising rallies, boat jumbles and social and other events are organised under the umbrella name of Medina Combined Clubs. The arrangement also allows our members to use certain facilities of the other clubs. Discounts have also been negotiated with local retailers for the benefit of members.

If you are interested in joining, you just need to print, complete and return the application form:  Membership application . Please note that there may be a waiting list for dinghy spaces. If you wish to check the current position or require any further information about
membership, please email medinamariners@gmail.com or call us on 07900 033276. We look forward to hearing from you.
