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.
