We pride ourselves on our superb clubhouse and facilities, including our popular bar and restaurant managed by the world-renowned Mosimann’s dining club (book a table here).

We run regular dinghy and keelboat racing throughout the season, as well as cruising days, rallies and meets - for motor boats as well as yachts. A prominent RYA affiliated training centre, we provide regular training courses and host a breadth of racing and sailing regattas, championships and events.
