A Junior Membership can be obtained by a person under 22 and a full time student who is not a dependent of a Full Member and who owns a craft which is launched from the Club site. This membership type is for keen young people whose parents or guardians have no interest in becoming members themselves.

Young people who wish to race in any junior regattas the club may hold must be under 18 years of age and a dependent of a Full Member or under 18 and a Junior Member in their own right.

The main junior racing event of the year is the Junior Regatta held on the same day as the Commodore's Cup races. Any junior who wishes to race is lent a boat, usually a Sunfish, so that the races are all one class. The coveted Junior Trophy is won by the top sailor.
