Adult sailing

Tuesday evening sailing is open to all adult members of the club. We welcome everyone who wants to come along, from novices upwards. You can socially sail whilst enjoying the company of like minded people, both on the water and in the club house.

Tuesday evening adult sailing is an excellent way to meet other club members as well as gaining experience of dinghy sailing. Newcomers to sailing are teamed with an experienced helmsman and can learn the basic boat handling skills usually in one of the clubs Wayfarers – a large and very stable dinghy which can accommodate 4 adults.

Sailors with some previous experience attending Adult Sailing Sessions for the whole season, should be able to helm the Wayfarer with reasonable confidence by the season’s end. For complete novices it may take a little longer. You will also gain valuable experience of local sailing conditions and the effect of wind and tide.

Please note other club dinghies such as Fusions, Lasers and Picos are available for booking out on WhatApp during adult sailing sessions.

The group meets at 18.00 hrs each Tuesday from early May through to the end of September. The evening will normally start with a short chat covering topics such as boat handling, weather, tides, safety etc.

Sailing conditions for the evening are assessed and a destination agreed for the evening sail. Everyone then splits into groups of between 2-3 led by an experienced helmsman, the Wayfarers are rigged and the group sets off accompanied by the club safety boat.

We return to the club moorings by 20.00 hrs where boats have to be safely moored, de-rigged and the equipment put away. The sailors then repair to the club bar for an après sail session.
