We operate on and by the water most of the time so basic swimming competence is essential.
NOTE: The meeting nights are changing in September 2016 and these options are for the days which will apply from then. The more flexible you can be the more likely we are to be able to accommodate you. Leave blank if you do not mind.
We have to balance the year group and gender mix on each evening. Please detail why a particular night is essential if that is the case.
