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.
Solo Northern Series

First race 11-00am 3 races 2 to count
10th & 17th September, 8th & 15th October
Last chance to improve your sailing skills this season with on-the-water coach led sessions.
We hope to run two groups on Saturday mornings:
1) Improvers - suitable for anyone sailing at RYA Level 2 or Junior Stage 3 standard (age 12 and above).
This will focus on better boat control, more effective upwind sailing, tacking techniques and confident gybing.
2) 'Back of the fleet' racing coaching - suitable for anyone who is either starting to race or is already racing but doesn't get into the front half of the fleet.
The focus will be on good starting techniques, getting to and around the first windward mark in a good position, effective use of wind shifts, mark rounding etc.
There are 4 Saturday morning sessions on September 10th & 17th and on October 8th & 15th, starting at 09:30am and finishing at 12:30am.

|Not long now till Bart's Bash. Those of you who have been involved before know the score - one big race starting at 11am on 18 September. We need as many boats as possible on the water, and would like a minimum donation of £1 per boat to help the wonderful work being done by the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in memory of 'Bart'. If you don't know what this is all about or who 'Bart' was get googling - this is a cause very close to the heart of dinghy sailing and always provides a good natured if fickle racing event.
Volunteers required to help make the race a success! Face painters, hair braiders, poster makers, photograph takers, trips round the bay takers. Let's make this a real event to remember! Who's going to be there?
