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.
We are now running Safety Boat Familiarisation sessions for those members who have a duty as SBO or ASBO this year and who do not hold a PB2 certificate.
We have limited places on each session and you must book in advance to ensure that we have sufficient Instructors available to run the session for the number of attendees as we work on a strict 1 to 3 ratio of instructors to trainees to give everyone enough time to get behind the wheel of the boat.
Just a reminder that there will be a training/revision session for race officers and their teams on Wed evening 1 April. We will cover the practical aspects of the RO team duties and feature setting appropriate courses, start lines as well as the essentials of time keeping and race management, so please come along to refresh your skills so that you are able to provide the high standard of RO that we look forward to this season!
The galley will be open from about 6.30 pm serving hot food so you can come straight from work, and we'll open the bar.
The session will start about 7.15pm and last for a couple of hours.
Spring Starts on Sunday!
The Spring Series races start on Sunday 22nd with 3 races a day, for slow, medium and fast fleets.
The first race starts at 11-00am and the second race after lunch (galley open) about 1-15pm.

Yorkshire-born Paul Heiney has had a career in broadcasting spanning more than 30 years, most recently as presenter of Countrywise. When his son Nicholas, a keen sailor, committed suicide aged 23, Heiney was rocked to the core. To try to reconnect with happier memories of his son, Heiney decides to set out – alone – on a voyage he would have liked them to have embarked upon together, around the formidable Cape Horn, the sailor’s Everest.
|Listen to Paul tell the story of his journey – both the physical one he made across the most dangerous route on water, and also along the emotional road towards coping without his son. This is the very private face of the public figure.
