The Nottingham Sailing Club

Nottingham Sailing Club is located on the River Trent near West Bridgford and the National Water Sports Centre. We have over 250 members and pride ourselves on the friendly atmosphere of our Club. New members are always welcome. Members enjoy a variety of racing, cruising, training and social activities.

Club racing takes place on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season as well as Thursday evenings from May to late August. A variety of dinghy classes are sailed at the Club, particularly Laser, Albacore, GP14, Enterprise, Solo and National 12.


The Club also actively encourages junior dinghy sailing and runs a specific junior sailing session on Saturday afternoons from Spring until the end of Summer. Youngsters are also encouraged to sail Club Toppers during any Club Session when a Safety Boat is in attendance.
