Racing and Sailing
The water is open to members 7 days a week.
The Club offers the highest standard of competitive dinghy racing with fleet racing, pursuit and handicap racing every Sunday, and handicap racing every Wednesday afternoon from March to September.
Our Friday Social Sailing provides members with an opportunity to get on the water with a like minded group of club members on hand to give advice, share experiences and build confidence.
The Junior Club runs one Saturday afternoon a month providing a safe environment for junior members to gain experience, build confidence and most importantly have fun on the water.
Sailability sessions run Saturdays from April to October using specially designed and adapted boats sailors can either sail on their own or with an experienced buddy. We have powerboats that are adapted to roll on wheelchairs and can even be driven by someone who is in a wheelchair. Our sailing boats are specially designed not to capsize and so are perfectly safe for sailing in most conditions. Our mantra is for enjoyment both off and on the water, hence we don’t sail in the cold winter months as sitting in a boat on the water can at times be very cold.
