Our financial year is from 1 January to 30 December, and our membership fees are structured accordingly. For members joining in the early part of the year, we offer options for an upfront payment, otherwise fees can be paid through our payment plans. The table below sets out the full year fee structure and payment options – note this is for a full year fee only. 

The Club offers both recreational and competitive memberships, depending on what you would like to get out of the sport. Both provide the same level of access to equipment and coaching; however the competitive membership includes additional insurance cover while you are away competing.

As a competitive member, you can take part in all club regattas and competitions. As part of the North Queensland circuit, members compete at club regattas in Mackay and Townsville (TVL & JCU Rowing Club and Riverway Rowing Club) and host the Head of the Trinity Inlet (the HOTTI) in September every year. Members can also compete at the State and National Masters Championships each year and World Masters Championships where possible.
