More About The Club…

We sail Thunderbolt, our Bavaria 38 from Southampton Town Quay marina. We schedule day-sailing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting. Sailing is organised by email and online calendar. Once you are signed-up there is no deposit to find and no formalities each time you sail.

The small membership means great availability and our ‘easy-in easy-out’ terms make the club a low risk, high value route to solid all-round sailing competence. With a small membership we have never had to turn anyone away.
