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.
Some of you may not have been aware but the RS200 Youth Championships were due to be held last weekend down at Northampton Sailing Club, if like me you went looking for the results and reports you will have been disappointed but perhaps unaware of why this was. Its no shock to learn that like most weekends recently, the Streaker open and N12 Opens both suffered the same problem, there wasn't enough wind to race on either Saturday or Sunday, at least not until the RO abandoned on Sunday when of course a bit o f breeze appeared.
Our annual National 12 open takes place on Saturday 3rd October and promises to provide a very high quality fleet with competitors from across the UK attending to get points in for the Gull series, which this meeting is part of. The event usually provides a great day for spectators, with a full range of N12 designs from pre-war to built this year, all racing against each other.
1st race 11-00am, 3 races 2 to count.
Galley open all day, bar open post event.
There is a rumour that there will be a supper after the event, details from Tim

Over the weekend of 26 and 27 September the RYA held their annual Zone Championships. The championships take place at 9 region venues, with entry dependent upon where you sail and where you live. The event forms the regional championship for each zone and is aimed at all sailors in local clubs who are racing in the RYA classes (Optimist, Topper, RS Feva XL and Windsufers). The RYA kindly offer the opportunity for Tera sailors to join in with a central venue selected each year for a cross-zone Tera fleet. In addition to all of this a coached regatta fleet is operated for Optimist, Tera and Topper sailors at each venue, ideal for novice racers.
This year we managed to send a record 12 competitors to the Zones - our best attendance ever. Attendees competed at Rutland Water (Tera main fleet, Laser 4.7) and Ullswater (RS Feva XL and Regatta fleet). Martin Miller has provided this report on the racing at Rutland, and Jennie Clark provides the detail on Ullswater.
The Streaker Open takes place on 26th Sept, a great chance for you to have the whole pond to yourselves for the day and to put into practice all that you learned during the recent coaching session. It doesn't matter what your ability is, there will be someone else to pit your skills against. With such a strong fleet of ladies sailing on Wednesday afternoons we hope you will come and join in too.
