Thornbury Sailing Club (TSC) is at Oldbury on the river Severn, 2 miles north of the old Severn Bridge. Sailing takes place one and a half hours either side of high water, and the strong currents make for interesting racing. The river is about 2 miles wide, and has excellent conditions for cat sailing, with regular racing round the cans, and long distance races 7 miles up river to Sharpness and Lydney.

There are a collection of catamarans at the club including a Sprint 15 or two.

The Sprint 15 is well suited to the club, and anyone interested in trying it out would be very welcome.
