why not try racing?

Dinghy and Cruiser racing is held on Saturdays & Sundays (tide permitting), with special events on bank holidays and a Club Week and Regatta in August. Cadet Week racing is also held.


Our racing programme offers handicap racing and some dinghy class racing. There are 'short courses' for newer, less confident racers including our cadets. Our Cruiser racers also support the local clubs’ joint racing (BJRC) programme with all‑day races down river. Scheduled Open Events are on our racing programme. Contact the Hon. Sailing Secretary Andrew Field for further information.

We have Class Captains who are the first point of contact for members interested in Cruiser Racing, the Fast Handicap Fleets, the Medium Handicap & Lasers, Fireballs, Wayfarers, Short Course (includes Mirrors & Toppers),  Optimists, and Sprites (the Club's own class). 

Safety cover is provided during organised Club racing. All regular racers are expected to do a minimum of 2 Race Box and/or Patrol Boat Duties per year.
