Our sailing offers both pottering/cruising and racing, with a range of training and coaching opportunities thrown in. As an RYA Recognised Teaching Establishment we are ideally placed to take novices through the basic learn to sail courses - from 7 years upwards. We support that learning with a range of coaching programmes run on selected Saturdays for adults, teenagers and junior sailors, providing you with additional support to get you sailing well.
Many of our members enjoy the competitive nature of racing. We offer the chance to join in with a variety of racing formats on Wednesday afternoons and evenings (April to early September) and on Sundays throughout the year (every week). Whether you are an ace helm seeking trophy winning glory or someone who just enjoys a bit of a tussle with fellow sailors of your own ability, our racing programme provides the chance to join with other members on the water. A map of the lake and the position of the current racing marks can be found below, alongside a version for printing multiple small copies (to laminate and take afloat).
All of our activities require help from members to ensure they run well and we hope that everyone will get involved in one way or another. Duties in the race hut or safety boat on Wednesdays or Sundays have now been expanded to include safety cover on specified Saturdays. Please help us to deliver the programme you all want to see by volunteering and turning up for your duties. Look out for our safety boat familiarization and training courses and also Race Management mentoring to help you develop your skills in these areas.
