Sailing at the Upper Thames Sailing Club

Dinghy Racing Club

UTSC is a dinghy racing club. It is also a recognised RYA Training and OnBoard Centre and can provide basic training on either a private or scheduled course basis. New members wishing to sail should discuss their needs with our Training Principal so that recommendations can be made. We have a number of RYA qualified Dinghy Instructors who may be available to provide the basic training required. See the programme for scheduled training courses or ask about individual private training. Also Bisham Abbey Sailing School and Bray Lake Training Centre are located nearby and  well equipped to provide basic training should UTSC not be able to meet your timescale.

Once someone has completed basic training then we welcome them to  participate fully in the racing we provide.

Members not wishing to race may also keep their boats at the club and may sail at any time.
