Why Dinghy Sailing

Dinghy Sailing is one of the best ways to get away from it all, leaving the daily grind of a hectic work life behind whilst enjoying the excitement of being on the water. Relax with a much slower pace of life cruising the Solent, push yourself physically on a Skiff or socialise with friends the options are endless.

Start Dinghy Sailing

Getting out on the water for the first time is easy at Weston Sailing Club. If you want to venture out on the water, under sail, then look no further than the training section of our website to help you take your first steps afloat.
