The club is located about a mile west of Cowes and is characterised by strong tidal flows which favour sailing Sport mode. It used to be a regular on our touring circuit and has been the host of many Sprint 15 Sport National Championships. More recently many of the local Sprint 15 fleet have moved on to sail Shadows but a few remain and new members are always welcome.
