To encourage members returning to HK to rejoin the Club, we have a generous Absent Members policy.
If you are a Full Member or Full Family Member about to leave Hong Kong, then notify the Club Secretary in writing of your intention to become an Absent Member, and provide your expected departure date.
By paying a one-time sum of HK$2,500, your name will be placed on the Absent Members List. Should you then return to Hong Kong, you can rejoin the Club without paying an additional Joining Fee. Absent Members cannot keep a boat at the beach after they leave HK.
A Full Member or Full Family Member who leaves Hong Kong without placing their name on the Absent Members List and paying the Absent Members’ Subscription, or without paying the normal monthly subscription while they are away, must pay the full membership fee to rejoin the Club.
