Information for New Members

South West Lakes Trust

In order to sail a boat on the lake, it is necessary to pay a launch fee to the South West Lakes Trust, who administer watersports on the lake (this is separate, and in addition to, membership of the UTLSC itself).  Launch fees for a season are currently £125 for an individual membership, £180 for a family membership, £85 for OAP/student and £60 for youth/disabled; in addition, boat storage is £60, plus £55 for each additional boat.  Day launch fees are £11 per day.  See the South West Lakes Trust web site for more details.
