Covid 19 update Tue 25 March 2021: With guidance from the RYA, we have now set the calendar. Easter weekend is our 1st sailing planned at the moment with a full wed eve / sun aft racing starting immediately afterwards. No access to changing rooms yet.
Sailing from Priors Haven, Tynemouth Sailing Club sails in the Tyne estuary from March to October with racing on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons and semi regular casual sailing when conditions are good. From Winter 2019 we have also raced on Sundays in freshwater at Ladyburn lake, just 40 minutes north of Newcastle & behind Druridge Bay sand dunes. As well as our regular competitive racing we also hold occasional open meetings where we host national or international fleets of dinghies.
Its worth getting hold of the program for the year which is set in January – its got all the main dates on, including some information on events in other locations (such as Bassenthwaite Week – a weeks sailing in the Lake District)
The club is a membership society. Ask us about our “courses & membership 1st year deal” if you are completely new to sailing. We run various courses through the year along with extension coaching normally on Sunday mornings.
If you do get enthusiastic, it’s worth getting yourself onto the email list (by becoming a member)– and theres an increasingly active Facebook page.
All members of Tynemouth sailing club take turns in the safety rota – when sailing there is a need for a safety boat & everyone takes a turn. Typically that means about two or three times a year you’ll be doing a safety rota – still great fun & lots to learn about small power boats.
If you’ve got this far & still not sure – why not contact us ?
