Christmas 2020 Member Offers

We have a sleigh full of Christmas offers for members this year including discounted gift memberships, personalised unbreakable glasses and enough fantastic nautical publications to fill any stocking.



Gift of Membership

Why not give the gift of CA membership? Order before 18th December to receive a gift card in time for Christmas.

Non-members can buy a CA membership for £148.50 for a one year membership gift and our present to you is that you don't need to pay a joining fee.

Buy a year of CA membership for a friend who isn’t yet a member. Existing members wishing to purchase membership for friends and family can also enjoy a 25% discount on top of this offer…and there's no need to set up a direct debit.

There's also the option to buy five-year or ten-year membership of the CA, an ideal gift for someone just starting out on their cruising experience.

These gift options are only available by paying the CA direct. Please contact our Membership Secretary without delay on +44 (0) 20 7537 2828 or email:

The pennant measures 7” x 4.5” (18cm x 11.5cm). It is handmade using the copperfoiled 'Tiffany’ method and has a loop on top for hanging. Because it is handmade, the colour of the glass may vary slightly.
