Club Management System
ESC uses Sailing Club Manager (SCM), a system that allows all members to maintain and update their own information and preferences and to renew their membership. SCM also maintains a list of members' qualifications, skill and duties, and is used alongside the website to provide information to members. Members can log on to the system from any computer to check their details. Help can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Checking this website (www.emsworthsc.org.uk) and online the programme are the best ways of keeping up to date with the latest status of sailing, training and social events at the Club.

Committee members and meetings
Please see the 'Who's Who' of committee members and meeting details here
Our volunteers are truly the lifeblood of the Club, and without them it simply could not function. All members are encouraged to contribute, whether it be by supporting the sailing programme, helping with our social and events programme, helping to implement our sustainability plan, cleaning the slipways, helping at our working parties, or by supporting regattas/open meetings. We have an extraordinary amount of talent within our membership, so if you want to get involved, whether as a regular or on an occasional basis, please let the office team know on email@example.com
Temporary membership is available to house guests of members at a cost of £31 for adults and £19 for children, per week. Temporary members should be accompanied by their member host at all times. Members can request temporary membership here
Members are welcome to bring guests to the Club, but the same individual cannot be introduced into the Club as a guest on more than six occasions in any one year or more than twice in any week. Each time a guest visits the Club, their name must be entered on to the Digital Guest Book (situated in the Wet Bar and Snug Bar) or by following this link or by scanning the QR code found on the menus, by the introducing member. Members are reminded that guests may order and pay for food and drink in the Club, provided the member is present, but that they cannot use the swimming pool. All members and guests use the Club premises entirely at their own risk. Please click here for the guidelines for signing guests in.
Events and social activities
There are lots of off-water activities taking place throughout the year such as monthly talks, themed suppers, BBQs, formal dinners and our weekly bridge club. Please click here for upcoming events.
Membership cards - access and cashless bar system
All adult (18 years and above) members will be issued with a debit card-sized membership card showing their name and membership number. This card (or 'token') will give the member access to permitted areas of the Club and can be used for the cashless bar system. For information please click here.
Members are able to book the Club for private functions and dinners. More details and a Private Functions Booking Form can be found here.
Opening times: 08:00-20:00 hours (or sunset if earlier) during the season.
All members using the pool, whether swimming themselves or supervising others, must possess a current resuscitation or first aid certificate. This must be uploaded to their membership profile or be shared with the office.

Guests are not permitted to use the pool unless they are registered as Temporary members.

The Blake Fund for Young Sailors
The Blake Fund for Young Sailors was established by the Club in 2001 following the tragic death of Sir Peter Blake, the celebrated New Zealand yachtsman whose home had been in Emsworth for more than 30 years. The Blake Fund inspires uptake, development and lifelong bonding with sailing, introducing young people to the water and nurturing the few to greater things. Its purpose is to create opportunities:
1. To inspire a lifelong passion for sailing
2. To encourage young children to sail
3. To enable competitiveness in sailing.
The main source of funding is the Blake Fund lottery with its monthly draw to raise money for the fund, plus additional ad hoc fundraising events and donations. All ESC members are encouraged to join the lottery and support our young sailors. For further details click here or by email firstname.lastname@example.org

The Club has a range of ESC-branded clothing for all age groups. Further details can be found here
