Home / Sailing / Overview


We have an extensive range of on the water activities throughout the year. Some are regular events and others happen annually. From our very active Cadet section, Saturday open sailing, Adult training evenings, a wide range of training opportunities, extensive racing programme and our Cruiser group, we are sure you will find something to help get you on the water.


Our Youth Section is separated into two groups, Juniors and Advanced.

Junior Cadets cover the ages 8 to 15, they will generally sail in Optimists, Picos, double handed RS Fevas or Wayfarer.

The 'Ad Cads' are the most senior cadet group. Aged between 15 and 18 they race and train all year round in Lasers (4.7, Radial and Standard Rigs).


Saturday Open Sailing operates from May until September, for dates and times please see the calendar on the home page.

The sessions are for club members to get on the water either in their own boats or by hiring club boats.

We provide the RIB cover, you just enjoy the sailing!


As the name implies this is for adults only. If you have never sailed a boat but would like to then these sessions are for you.

Beginners, improvers and those wishing to acquire more specific skills are welcome.


As an RYA approved training centre we run a variety of courses throughout the year. New courses are added as they are arranged.

Both on the water and shore based courses can be run.


A full programme of competitive club racing is available from the end of March to the end of December.

Starting usually from our race platform to the west of the ferry channel, we provide racing for keelboats and dinghies in handicap series.

We also run a number of open events during the year.


Our cruiser organising group organise events throughout the year. For details see the CRUISING tab
