Recreational Sailing (FOS and Just Sail)

Recreational sailing - ways to get afloat

While many will wish to sail independently, the club also offers some supported recreational sailing sessions each season. These are a good way to meet other club members.  Keep an eye on the club facebook pages and also the Club web based calendar

Follow On Sailing - (FOS) Adults (link to special FOS group activities)

The club supports developing sailors by providing Follow on Sailing dinghy sailing practice sessions. They are suitable for adults who

  • Have recently qualified with RYA 2
  • Already have qualifications in dinghy sailing but havent sailed for a while
  • Experienced sailors who are new to the club and would like information about sailing on our waters
  • Practical introduction to dinghy sailing in the estuary in tidal conditions

Sessions typically involved a short talk on estuary sailing, including weather and tide conditions, followed by supported rigging of boats before going out on the water. Participants can use their own boats or use club boats free of charge for these sessions. There is no charge for FOS but places must be confirmed through the Whatsapp group

There will be 10 Sessions on Saturdays across the 2024 season. If you are interested in participating please contact Heather Harris on to get added to the FOS WhatsApp group through which all FOS sessions are organised

Just Sail

The club also runs "Just Sail", group recreational dinghy sailing sessions. These are open to members with the ability to sail independently and are run under standard club rules. Just Sail has a dedicated safety boat and participants sail in a designated area. It provides an opportunity to sail with and meet other club members. Members can sail their own boats or use the Club boats which will be available for these sessions at a cost per hire.

There will be 10 Sessions on Sundays across the season. If you are interested in participating please contact Heather Harris on to get added to the Just Sail WhatsApp group through which the Just Sail sessions will be organised.
