Shanklin Sailing Club
Shanklin Sailing Club was founded in 1931. It is a small, happy, family club, with all the usual facilities: showers, changing rooms, club house and a gear store. We have 42 Sprint 15 catamarans and a small fleet of Picos. We race on Thursday evenings, Sunday mornings and Tuesday afternoons; but you can sail at any other time. We make regular cruising trips outside of the racing season, usually on a Sunday morning.
Shanklin Sailing Club is situated on the south coast of the Isle of Wight between Sandown and Ventnor, the club is located by the beach at the north end of Shanklin's Promenade. Access to the water is via a shelving sandy beach.
Prospective members are very welcome to come along. Visit us on a Sunday morning or call Liam on 721264.
