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.
