HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
Please note Ordinary memberships (those with skippers ticket and a boat) will receive preference over social membership applications. Please note that any ordinary membership application must have a copy of your Skippers Ticket and COF of your deep sea fishing boat included. If you still wish to submit a membership application you can do so and you will be placed on the waiting list. Ordinary memberships (those with skippers ticket and a boat) will receive preference over social membership applications when we do take on new memberships. Please note that any ordinary membership application must have a copy of your Skippers Ticket and COF of your deep sea fishing boat included.
To apply for membership at DSBC please download the Membership Form PDF, print, full in, attach photographs and scan document and email to firstname.lastname@example.org together with relevant documentation. Remember you need two people that are currently paid up members of the club to propose and second you- they both need to be ordinary members of DSBC for two years or more. Once a decision has been made that we have space for new members we will make contact with you during the month prior to the application forms being submitted to the committee at the monthly committee meeting (held on the last Wednesday of each month). Once your application has been accepted in principle you will be invited to attend an induction to which you will be invited via email.
Please note it is compulsory for all new members to attend an induction. We will invoice you and you can settle via EFT.
Please make sure you have an email address on your application form as we prefer to communicate via email
