Send us an email if you have have any questions.

What you will need:

   • A love of boating
   • A cheerful disposition
   • Enthusiasm

What you won't need

   • Previous experience - but it's great if you are already a sailor
   • To be young and super-fit - most people can enjoy sailing, regardless of age, call if you're unsure
   • To be built like a gorilla - some of the best single-hand ocean sailors are women
   • Pots of money - As a member you can book the boat to use when you want, but you may incur hourly costs for a club-approved sailing-coach. See the bottom of the 'Home' page for more details.

'Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.'
