General queries, Terms & Conditions

One general question we are often asked - how much experience do I need? The short answer is none!

Our aim is to get as many club members as possible out on the water crusing and racing at whichever level they want. We aim to balance the experience within each crew to make sure everyone gets the most out of each event.

For the longer offshore racing events we would advise people to take part in one of the yacht cruising events to get some experience sailing on a big boat over a number of days. It's not for everyone.

For the bigger racing events, which involve racing over a number of days away from shore there are usually qualifying events that the boats crew must complete that will build up your experience. To "do the Fastnet" involves completing a number of qualifying events in the same year before you even start the 300 mile trip out to the Fastnet Rock.

For new members who may be worried about going out on a yacht for the first time, you can also join one of our New Member Cruises where you will be sailing with a group of people like you. These are good introductory weekends and a nice way to meet other new members. You can however join any cruising event having never set foot on a yacht before.
