Dinghies

Saltash Sailing Club is a friendly family based club and is an excellent venue for dinghy sailors whether you are a beginner or an experienced sailor.

 

Sailing is possible at all states of the tide. The Club runs a popular cadets night each Friday throughout the season (fortnightly through the winter), which is a lot of fun, gives the youngsters a comprehensive grounding (various levels of RYA qualifications dependent on how far they wish to go) and takes them up to racing standard. The Club recognises that learning sailing is not always so easy for Mums and Dads and we are also looking at helping the (slightly) older novice!

 

Saltash provides excellent competitive sailing and welcomes anyone who wishes to race dinghies. Many of our young sailors achieve very highly at both South West and National level.

The major racing fleets in our series on Tuesday evenings are RS 400s, Laser 1,  and Toppers. However we have a wide spectrum of other dinghies out each week with  Fast, Medium and Slow handicap fleets.

The first series for dinghies starts in early April on Tuesday evenings. Tuesday sailing continues through the year until mid-September when we then have Saturday morning racing run jointly with Tamar River Sailing Club.

During June or July we also host two dinghy pursuit races  as part of the Saltash Town Regatta celebrations. Make a date in your diary and come and join us – for details of the dates follow the Program and Sailing Instructions link below.
