More information about other future activities at the Club here

Nottingham Sailing Club is located on the River Trent near West Bridgford and the National Water Sports Centre. We have over 250 members and pride ourselves on the friendly atmosphere of our Club. 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, Albacore, GP14, Enterprise, Solo and National 12.


The Club also actively encourages junior dinghy sailing and runs a specific junior sailing session on Saturday afternoons 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.

RYA Training Courses

Our RYA Level 1 "Learn-to-Sail" courses for 2020, to be held on the weekends of May 16th/17th & June 13th/14th, are now open for booking. Last few places still available for May!

For Club members we plan to run the RYA Start Racing Course over two Saturdays on the 4th and 18th of April. A great way to hone your skills for the 2020 Race season!

Also for Club members interested in working towards a Powerboat 2 Certificate, the morning of 15th March is an opportunity to learn PowerBoat Basics, and there is an introduction to rescue in the afternoon. Places are limited so book early by Emailing here!


Nottingham Sailing Club is always keen to welcome new members, both those wishing to learn for the first time or more experienced sailors keen to join in our cruising and racing programme.

Feel free to pop along and have a look around the Club on any sailing session. See Calendar.
