The catchment area for the branch is based on Peterborough and approximately one hour travelling distance; therefore this takes in members in Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Rutland and Nottinghamshire.

Whilst Peterborough is the central point, with a view to being more accessible for our members, our meetings are nomadic. For example we have held meetings as follows: Yaxley, Cambridgeshire; Crowland, Lincolnshire; Rutland Sailing Club, Rutland; Kendrew Barrack, Rutland, Corby Glen, Lincolnshire.
