SAILING

The club runs a comprehensive racing program for 8 months of the year. The racing normally takes place on a Saturday morning with occasional full weekend races when we combine with the cruising section to visit neighbouring ports.

Although the racing is competitive, it is conducted in a very friendly manner, our ultimate aim is to get as many boats out on the water as possible. Some crews take it very seriously while others see it as an opportunity to sail in the company of other boats.

The program has something for everyone, from racing around the harbour to full offshore events when we cross the English Channel. One of the best ways to improve sailing skills and gain valued experience is to race regularly.

Skippers are often in need of extra crew, so contact the club to get your name on the crew register.

CRUISING

If you like visiting new ports and exploring unknown destinations, if you like having fun, meeting people and making friends, if you like sharing ideas, information and experiences, then cruising is for you.

 

Our cruising group has a reputation for hospitality and warmly welcomes newcomers from the sailing and power boat fraternities. Boat owners are always seeking crew to join them on their adventures, just send your details to the club office to be added to the crew register, no previous experience required.

 

Dover has an unrivalled position, providing an excellent base for exploring the British and North European coastlines. The club has built an excellent rapport with our French counterparts in Calais, Boulogne and Le Touquet, where our crews are always welcomed with open arms and the odd glass of wine or two! Some yachts often sail much further afield, including the Isles of Scilly, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Brittany and the Channel Islands.

 

Our club has a very strong affiliation with the Global Offshore Sailing Team (GOST). GOST is a multinational group of sailors who come together, to sail routes around the world in commemoration of great naval missions and to pay respect to those who bravely gave the ultimate sacrifice.
