Although there's regular racing, many members just sail without racing.

Most of the water can be sailed on, although there are a few shallow patches. We sail through most of the year, with a variety of races and series organised. We welcome and have facilities and equipment for both disabled sailors and juniors. A particular feature of the club is the ease of access to the water from a stable pontoon.
