If you're new to sailing, then starting with dinghies is a fantastic (and by far the best) way to learn. The club's dinghies are kept at Waldringfield SC with which we have close ties.
The Xenons take a crew of two or three. Our new Hartley dinghy takes two and can be easily sailed solo whilst the Laser is a single hander for the more confident. The club provides buoyancy aids. About ten sessions should suffice for training. We have several Race series (not too serious) and weekend day trips up or down the river Deben, sometimes to sea, as well as casual sailing whenever we like.
We sail from Easter to October. You do not have to helm if you don't want to as normally another member can be found to helm. Dinghy sailing is a great introduction to the yacht although not essential.
We have lots going on throughout the season.
- training - one to one training for all levels of experience .
- racing & events at evenings and weekends.
- booking - dinghies available for private use by suitably qualified members.
If you don't know your Xenons from your Hartley's or Lasers you can find out more about them on these web sites:
