Dinghy Sailing at Warsash

The club has a mix of cruising and racing dinghy sailors with over 300 boats in the pounds at Shore House and Lobster Quay.

The club run a number of popular Adult Sailing sessions free to club members. Their aim is help you get out on the water regardless your ability with support provided by our more experienced members. There are sessions for WoW (Women on Water), Friday morning sailing and Single Handed Training

For younger sailors our Youth section describes these activities at Warsash and our younger members are actively encouraged to take part in club racing

Evening racing is the mainstay of club dinghy competition over the summer. Without any tidal constraints to launch we are able to sail every Wednesday and Friday evening, from late April all the way through to mid-September (A, B & C Series). NEW in 2023 is the Friday afternoon D Series.

Sunday racing commences mid-September with the Autumn Series and then Winter Series followed by the Aussie Summer Series in January. Each series consists of 8 races, 1 race per day.

All classes are welcome but the most popular are: RS400, RS 200, Finn, RS Aero, Blaze, Hadron, 2000, Laser, Topper & RS Feva XL.

Like most clubs we are reliant on volunteers to run racing. Those who race are asked to support by carrying out at least one duty as either RIB Crew, Starter/Recorder or Race Officer for each series they sail in. We are also very grateful of help from non-racing members. Race points are awarded for those carrying out their required duties.

The club bar is open following racing and hot food is available.
