Dinghy Sailing

For personal development, training or competition, you can learn and train in dinghies of all categories, at national and overseas events, with us.

Royal Navy Dinghy Sailing

Committed to retaining our status across all three services as the number one dinghy sailing team, we operate across the UK to get Royal Navy personnel of all experience engaged in the sport, no matter your starting point.

From our grassroots 'learn to sail' programme at four RN Watersports Activity Centres and keelboat sessions at Warsash, to our structured development pathways, we're encouraging novice and experienced sailors to optimise their talents in all arenas. Keen to embrace the latest developments in the sport, we're also opening up foiling, with our 'First Flight' programme.

For those sailors looking to take their skills on to competitive racing at Inter-Service and National circuit level, our annual training camp at Lake Garda in Italy is developing sailors that could even take their talents to Olympic representation.

Get involved

We are all about creating as many opportunities in dinghy sailing as possible: from the traditional, to keelboat and foiling disciplines. Whether you've never sailed before or you're a seasoned sailor in competitive racing, you can sail with us.

From taster and recreational sessions, to taking part in the three Inter-Service championships, we run Hartley 15, RS2000,  RS200 and RS Aero double handers and Dart16 catamarans, as well as the latest SB20 keelboat to cater for all interests and disciplines.

To get involved, just get in touch.
