Remember that the car park can be quite full on a warm day and you may need to allow 10 minutes to get to the clubrooms. A smooth start enables all Nippers, parents and leaders to enjoy their afternoon on the beach. Nippers can only join as part of a Family Membership. As of 2017, the cost of this membership is $140 ($130 if membership is renewed prior to ‘early bird’ cutoff).
