Situated in Northamptonshire, the club which was founded in 1966, is run by volunteers and is non-profit making. It is a fully affiliated and registered training centre with the RYA (The Royal Yachting Association). The Club caters for sailors of all abilities, and we are particularly proud of our junior membership and youth squad. In 2012 we were awarded ‘RYA Club of the Year’.
We welcome new members, both those wishing to learn for the first time or more experienced sailors keen to join in our racing programme.

What we have...
  • Competitive and full race programme
  • Training in all aspects of dinghy sailing
