The purpose of the club is to encourage dinghy racing and promote the amateur sport of sailing. Members need not own boats nor have previous sailing experience.
We encourage a helpful friendly family atmosphere in which members of all abilities and ages are welcome.
The most popular boats sailed are GP14, Laser, Solo, Topper, Mirror, Pico & Comet. Organised racing takes place on Sundays between March and December.
Throughout the summer months leisure sailing is encouraged on a Saturday and on a Wednesday evening we hold both leisure sailing and informal racing events. Members are welcome to sail on other days but safety cover in the form of a rescue boat may not be present.
More experienced Club members are available to offer help and advice should it be required. The club is a recognised Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Training Centre and courses are arranged for various levels. The Clubhouse, changing facilities and galley are available to members and social events are organised throughout the year.
In order to keep Subscription rates down members are expected to be involved assisting with race management, safety boat cover, maintenance and galley duties. These are not too onerous and tend to encourage a friendly atmosphere.
If you would like further information you are welcome to visit the club or contact a member of the committee (see contact page). Membership application forms are available at the club or can be downloaded from the contact page.
