Frequently Asked Questions

  • What features have been improved on our new site?

    Membership – For the first time in the society’s history, membership has now gone online making it even easier for you all to become a member of our society/charity/to support our steamship. The new system allows you to setup auto renew payments if you wish. Our new site also allows passengers to become a member at point of booking a ticket for a sailing and save 10% on the same booking.

    Ticketing Sales – Our ticketing system has been improved further to allow us to take voucher codes and create bespoke tickets for any type of event. This is something that our old website could not accommodate. We are now also able to offer redeemable gift vouchers to give your family or friends.

    Member access – Our generic “one sign in” DockGate4 login has been removed. On our new site, each member will have unique credentials to sign in and manage their account/membership preferences/payment details.

    3. Once logged in press “Membership” on the left-hand side of the page.

    5. Press “Add Payment”.

    6. Scroll down and press “Use new payment method”. Enter your card information and then press “add payment method”.

    7. Your card details have now been saved and the payment will come out of your account on 01/04/2021.
