Members Sailing for 2017

The club owns a fleet of Toppers, a Laser and a Wayfarer.

All club organised dinghy sessions will continue to benefit from  safety boat cover and we continue to offer all training at cost to our members, making it as affordable as possible.

Unfortunately, there will be a slightly slower start to the season this year; not is only Tim, our RC Sailing off sailing his Southerly 110 around Britain but also Christine and Terry, our dinghy leads, are sailing their Westerly Oceanquest back from Spain. 

With our recent acquisition of a Wayfarer and Laser we are now able to offer adult dinghy sailing and training. Sessions can be run midweek and/or weekends if enough interest is shown.

Details of all dinghy activities will be published via email and listed on the websites calandar - keep your eyes out for additional activities as we regularly add more opportunities as the season progresses.
