No better place to be

Even when racing is in progress, the water is large enough to accommodate both social sailing and racers without feeling congested. Safety cover is provided whenever the water is open. Alongside the social sailing calendar, the club offers a well-supported shored based social calendar, and the bar is usually open for a post sail drink.
If you don’t own your own boat, the club has a fleet of boats available for members to hire, and can connect you with other sailing members who are looking for a crew or helm, either as a one off or a regular partnership. A great way to learn to sail and make new friends.
