Dinghy Sailing

Wivenhoe Sailing Club has a thriving dinghy racing circuit and boats that sail include W.O.D.s, Lasers, Flying Fifteens, Wayfarers, Mirror Miracles and Topaz to name but a few.

There are a number of Club owned sailing dinghies available for members to use in three different classes.  There are 8 Topaz dinghies, the classic designed Wayfayer and the latest addition a Yachting World Day Boat.  See more information of the Club Boats here

During Club racing days a fully equipped Safety Boat is on duty for the period of the race providing safety cover. This therefore is an ideal time to try out a Club boat and join in Club racing or one of the many organised Club sailing activities.

There are regular Handicap Class races throughout the season during weekends starting in February with the Frostbite Series and going through to late December.

Of course, you can just take one out for a quiet sail and explore the quiet inlets and beeches, searching out the mosaic of varied habitats, home to diverse bird species and wildlife like few other places in the country.

The club always welcomes new members.  And for those who are a little nervous about racing the Club can pair you up with someone who is experienced to get you sailing.

If you would like more information regarding, racing or simply learning to sail then come along on Friday evening after 8pm or email
