You don't have to wait until the committee has approved your application to continue training and rowing but you may not race or steer for the club until you are formally a member and have paid a sub.

By applying for membership and paying a subscription to Cygnet RC, you agree to comply with the club's Code of Conduct. The committee reserves the right to eject members, without refund, who do not conduct themselves accordingly or bring the club into disrepute.
