Sailing With Us

When do we meet?

We meet for sailing and training from 1st Tuesday in April to the last Friday in October.



Where do we meet?

We meet at Spinnaker Lake, Ivy Lane Ringwood, BH24 3LY.      See our Location Map

What shall I wear?

You don’t need to buy expensive sailing kit; we can provide you with a buoyancy aid. Just wear your normal outdoor clothes and sensible shoes or trainers. Bring a sun hat and sun screen on those hot summer days; pack a waterproof jacket and ideally waterproof trousers, for those rainy days.

How do I Join?

Contact us for a trial sail or just pop into Spinnaker when we are sailing,
or ring the Membership Secretary, Stefan Hart, on 01202 619426 or email him at

Hot and cold drinks are always available but bring your own packed lunch.
