Sailing / Yacht Club
Weir Quay Sailing Club was formed on the 15th May 1966 when eighteen prospective members attended the inaugural meeting which was convened at Weir Quay and the Club’s constitution was modelled accordingly to the R.Y.A recommendations, but with local variations. From this inauspicious beginning, the Club organised itself and gained in strength. In 1967, twelve moorings were purchased for letting to members with cruising boats, so encouraging this side of the Club, and a social committee came into being. Dinghy racing began and the Club was recognised as such by the Royal Yachting Association. The Mirror dinghy was chosen as the Class racing boat although nowadays racing is mainly to handicap.
