Sailing / Yacht Club
The Club has enthusiastic Dinghy and Cruiser sections and accommodates many dinghies and yachts as well as some trailer-sailers (limited). Moorings are available but there is usually a waiting list. A slip that runs to the low water channel gives access at all states of the tide for tenders and dinghies. Dinghy racing is popular and takes place throughout the year on Sundays, with Tuesday and Thursday evening racing from April to August. Encouraging children to sail is a long established sailing tradition and the Club’s Junior sailing week, which takes place in the summer school holidays, is always very popular. There are also sailing development sessions organised for all ages to encourage those who may be ‘rusty’ as well as spouses who have never learnt to sail, out onto the water. The Club has 1 Vision, 3 Picos and a Topper as part of its training fleet and these are available for hire to suitably qualified members.
