Sailing / Yacht Club
Ranelagh Sailing Club was founded in 1889 and enjoys a superb and convenient location on the bank of the River Thames. The broad, two mile stretch of the Tideway has produced excellent and challenging sailing. Year-round racing is offered at Ranelagh with an appealing program of races on Saturdays, Sunday s and Bank Holidays. Tidal conditions limit sailing in the winter to every second weekend, but in the summer we exploit the long evenings to offer midweek on-the-water training when tides allow. Class racing is offered for National Twelves and additionally Merlin Rockets, Solos and Lasers. In addition we run a number of handicap events, open meetings and special races including a charity pursuit event and a race down-river to the Tower of London and back. Beneath the club house is berthing for up to 80 boats, offering dry, secure storage, plus limited workshop facilities.
