GetSailing2We really welcome visitors to our beautiful clubhouse on the river. Do come along on a Tuesday night if you have ever fancied sailing, or might be interested in becoming a member.

Since our foundation over 100 years ago, we have always aimed to offer "affordable sailing for all". Our club is located halfway between the O2 and the Thames Barrier, and is home to cruiser sailors, dinghy sailors, motor-boaters and rowers. But you don't have to own a boat to come boating.

Staying Safe on the River

 1. Wear a lifejacket that will inflate or a buoyancy aid that will take your weight

2. Wear appropriate footwear

3. Take a hand held radio or phone in a waterproof case

4. Tell someone where you are going

5. Ensure your tender is sea worthy

6. Always use your ‘kill cord’

7. Secure any luggage or large items that you may be transporting

8. On arrival, approach into the tide and secure tender with a bowline to your boat. Consider using a stern line as well

9. When secured. Choose your moment to disembark, check for passing clippers or wash to subside

10. Remember, one hand for you and one for the boat
