Sailing takes place on the marine lake on weekday evenings between April and October and at weekends from April to December. There is also tidal sailing between April and October.
There are three tidal moored classes, Stars, Falcons and Hilbres which have organised races, usually at weekends according to the height and time of the tides. The dinghy classes use the marine lake in the evening during the week and either the tide or the lake at the weekends.
Dinghy classes comprise Fireflys(highly manoeverable, 12 foot 2 sail boats) GP14's(14 foot, 3 sail, general purpose dinghies)Larks(14 foot, glass fibre, 3 sail dinghies), Mirrors(small gunter rigged dinghies) and Lasers(nearly 13 foot, glass fibre, single sail dinghies). Exclusively for junior members are the fleets of Cadets and Optimists. Cadets are small 3 sail boats for 2 people. Optimists are single sailed, solo crewed boats for the younger helm.
