WSR Template Membership documents

Before affiliation can be accepted for the year starting in April, WSR requires some basic information from your club. This is to enable us to keep the necessary records and to update our information on each club in our database.

Individuals who are to be taken out as passengers in a boat would also need to be affiliated (and therefore insured) through the league. The expectation would be that they would pay the adult or junior WSR Membership fee to cover this.
