New members are always welcome. Members enjoy a variety of racing, cruising, training and social activities.

Club racing takes place on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season as well as Thursday evenings from May to late August. A variety of dinghy classes are sailed at the Club, particularly Laser, Comet, Albacore, GP14, Enterprise, Solo and National 12.


The Club also actively encourages junior dinghy sailing and runs a specific junior sailing session on Saturday mornings from Spring until the end of Summer. Youngsters are also encouraged to sail Club Toppers during any Club Session when a Safety Boat is in attendance.
