We are a very friendly Sailing Club and visitors are welcome to visit the club and have a look round at our facilities.We are an RYA Training Centre with RYA qualified Instructors.

We sail on Wednesday afternoon and evening, Thursday evening – Ladies Who Launch, and Saturday afternoons for Recreational sailing and Training, and having fun and then on Sunday we hold three races starting at 12.30pm. Refer to Sailing and Training Programme for more details.

If you fancy a go at sailing just pop down anytime, or better still contact the club beforehand by E mail or phone (see below). We have all the boats and safety equipment you will need. Just bring a change of sports clothes. We are offering a four week introduction to sailing for £20 for individuals or families.. If you then decide sailing is for you then the £20 will be deducted from your membership fee.

We have a big club room and bar and on sailing days the galley is open for hot food.

The club is run by the Club Council who are volunteers.
