The Club provides an excellent way to get into sailing. We have fully qualified staff to train you and a wide selection of club boats to learn in and improve your skills.You may then even consider getting your own boat.

The great thing about dinghy sailing is that it provides one of the cheapest ways to get afloat. It is also the quickest and easiest way to learn to sail as dinghies are easy to rig, they can be handled and sailed after a few lessons and are very responsive.
