Interested in joining our club?

We are a small friendly club based at Sugarloaf Bay accessed from Belton Road in Portishead.

If you are interested in joining the club, please contact Christine - and she can arrange for you to come and visit the club and have a look round and have a try sail before you commit to membership.

If you are already sold on the idea and would like to sign up, or are just looking for the membership form it can be found here.

Although our tidal location can be challenging, it is great fun to sail here, and we always ensure our members are safe to sail. We have various boats to hire so you can join up even if you don't own a boat, and we have many members who are looking for crew, which is another great way to get out sailing.

We are running a "Learn to Sail" courses in June 2019 - see training for details.
