Join the club

It's easy to join - just fill out this online form. You don't need a boat straightaway. Borrow a club boat, or crew for another member. When you are ready to buy a boat it doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg, there are lots of second-hand bargains to be had.

If you've walked around the lake and often fancied yourself bobbing about in one of the boats then what are you waiting for - join today and you'll be sailing by the weekend.

Get in touch


We are a sailing club, affiliated to the RYA, that welcomes families and individuals new to sailing or experienced. We provide training and coaching for adults and young people, to develop skills towards taking part in the club racing programme and beyond.
