Our Weekend sailing program

Our weekend sailing program aims at promoting all round practical skills ideally suited to competent crew and day skipper levels and subject to weather can normally work to a collective agenda where everyone is able to tick their own boxes!

Racing & Regattas

We offer a number of opportunities for you to gain skills & experience! One of the best is racing. We are able to offer different levels & some progression, effectively from Comp-crew so whether you’re a frustrated competitive type or an interested beginner this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

the John Lewis partnership which we won the ISC class for 2013 and 2015

Look up past performance on the Island sailing club website for Safeena Saree

The race & regatta  dates are fixed by the organisers so please register your interest early.

The great challenge that racing brings is the passage experience and sail & boat handling.


We usually have a mixture of experience aboard so you don’t need to be very experienced but it is usually a good idea to do a sail training or race training weekend first so you know your way around the boat.
