New Members

Finding what you need to know about the club and getting on the water can appear difficult, especially if you are new to NDYC and the area. If you have a question on any aspect of membership, comment below or email Heather Harris to find out more about sailing, cruising or motor boating, with information on courses, follow-on training, starting to race or how to get more involved in Club activities.

Dinghy Sailing

The club offers sailing covering a wide variety of skill and performance levels. If you don’t yet own a boat but are keen to sail we can help: we have a range of club boats (single handed Lasers, Argos, Bahias, Fevas and Picos)  which can be used by RYA qualified members

Experienced Sailors

          We race every weekend and sometimes mid-week through the season, with handicap races for both the ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ fleets. In this way we are able to offer competitive racing to all regardless of the class of boat you sail.

New/ Still Learning

          If you are uncertain about whether sailing is your thing, the club holds an Open Day in June (date TBA) as an opportunity for anyone to try sailing with experienced club members. 

          The club is an RYA Recognised Teaching Establishment and we run Training Courses for Youth and Adult members –

          If you are a recently qualified sailor the club hosts Follow on Sessions to support you as you practice you sailing skills –


There Club has an active Youth Squad  and Cadet section with events and courses throughout the summer season
