Please remember to renew your KSSA membership for 2024 (click the link or see below).

Be Prepared for Colder Weather: Winter can be a great time for sailing; what else would you be doing? But it is cold; wear the right gear and you’ll have a great day on the water and come in feeling invigorated. Don’t wear enough or the wrong type of clothing and you’ll likely come in cold, wet and miserable, very quickly. Don’t ruin your day, make sure you have got an adequate winter wet-suit or dry-suit. Thermal layers, hats, hotsocks, winter gloves etc are all a must. If you’ve not got the right gear, you can also often pick up kit in really good condition. Ask around the sailing club, kids do have a habit of growing quickly. Also pass your kit on to others to help keep costs down. There are dinghy groups on Facebook where you can often buy cheap kit, and you can sometimes find a bargain on eBay etc.

On arrival: Approaching the main gate along Quarry Grove you will pass a row of houses on your right, please mind your speed, the main gate will be open so drive on through and follow signs to Water Sports our team will direct you to parking.
