This page summarises the major policies of the Club, fully documented in the Club Regulations (PDF download). If you join the Club you should consult that document and not rely on the brief summaries presented here.
The Club is committed to the University's Equal Opportunities Policy. The Club aims to ensure that members and visitors are treated on their relative merits, abilities and potential, regardless of their sex, gender reassignment, relationships, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, age, socio-economic background, or other distinction. The Club does not have sufficient resources to offer sailing and windsurfing to all disabled people.
Members, and any guests they bring to an event, are expected to behave appropriately in their sailing and social activities, so as not to render the Club liable to criticism or bring the Club into disrepute.
The Club is active in direct marketing, mainly email marketing but also telemarketing to alumni, and follows the guidelines and good practices of the Direct Marketing Association (opens in a new window). Details of the data maintained for current students, members, and alumni will be found in the Data Protection section of the Club's website (opens in a new window).
The Club is currently registered with the Sports Service and the Proctors Office (open in a new windows). Registration arrangements for sports clubs will change during 2017-20 as new arrangements for Cambridge sport are finalised.
The Constitution is a reference document which defines how the Club is run. Alterations approved by the General Committee must be ratified by a two thirds majority vote of members at a General Meeting. View a PDF download of the current Constitution.
The Commodore's Report for the Club's year, which ends on 31 July, is published each Long Vacation and formally approved at the subsequent Michaelmas Term AGM. View a PDF download of the current Commodore's Report.
The financial accounts for the Club's year, which ends on 31 July, are formally approved at the subsequent Michaelmas Term AGM and submitted to the Proctors in December of that year. Sometimes formal AGM approval takes place after the accounts have been submitted to the Proctors. Members may request copy of the latest accounts from the Senior Secretary.
