Helping to get more people sailing, more often
We pride ourselves on being a family oriented sailing club, providing a safe environment for all members of the family, the club has recently invested significantly in refurbishing its facilities to provide welcoming and comfortable shore facilities that complement our unrivalled launching and jetty facilities. Dinghy racing is our passion but we also provide a high standard of instruction and coaching for all ages and abilities. If you want to sail but don't like getting your feet wet then our DF65 model yacht racing may be for you.
We welcome new membership enquiries. To make enquiries or find out more About us please browse the website or use the Contact Us tab to choose the appropriate contact for your enquiry.

Tactics Sessions at Ripon SC on 22nd Feb, don't forget to put the date in your diary
Wednesday 8th February, 7:15pm at the clubhouse - Racing Tactics at Ripon
For all regular racers and beginners. There are many reasons why to top racers at the club get where they are and this session will shed some light on the tactics adopted when starting a race and on the windward legs. We will try to make this specific to racing on the lake at Ripon, and hopefully provide some pointers that you can use to improve your own positions during the 2017 season. This session will be hosted by myself and ably assisted by Richard Pryke and Chris Wright, both of whom have many years of racing experience at Ripon and an intimate knowledge of the vagaries of the winds here.
Wednesday 22nd February, 7:15pm at the clubhouse - Racing Tactics at Ripon
This will be a final follow on session to the 8th Feb and will cover the tactics adopted on the downwind legs and the finishing leg, again hopefully providing some pointers that you can use to improve your positions during the 2017 season. This session will also be hosted by myself, Richard Pryke and Chris Wright.
The bar will be open for each event and we hope that as many of you as possible come along and enjoy yourselves, meet up with sailing colleagues, pick up a few pointers and while away the winter months in preparation for next season!
