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.
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.
Next Sunday is the final afternoon of the Summer Series, so your last chance to get some points for the trophies for Slow, Medium and Fast fleets.
The morning race is an RNLI pursuit, so the faster boats start last, and your position after 75mins is your finishing place.
It's also the July Monthly Mug competition, so if you race all 3 races in the day you could win the stylish and unique mug, designed by Andy Hague.

Five Ripon juniors competed in the RS Tera Inland National Championships held at Oxford sailing club over the weekend 20th, 21st June. Ana Paterson, Henry Rastrick, Jamie Rastrick, Tom Storey and Oliver Kent. Ana and Henry competed in the 30 strong Pro fleet while Jamie, Tom and Oliver represented the club in the 40 strong Sport Fleet.
