To encourage family focused participation in the sport of dinghy sailing in an inclusive environment.
The club is about the combination of members working together on projects that give fulfilment in training and competitive and recreational sailing.
We also believe that sailing is not only an excellent sport, demanding both physical and mental skills, but is also a platform for the development of life skills. These skills include the ability to operate as a member of a team, to communicate effectively, and to provide the leadership needed to manage both resources and people. We also build club camaraderie through regular, social activities.
Everyone is a volunteer and gives up their time for the enjoyment of the sport. Consequently our fees are low compared with other sailing centres.
