Sutton Bingham Sailing Club

Club Closure

Due to the Corona Virus situation the club is closed until further notice. Government advice is to avoid unnecessary travel and to maintain social distancing. We would encourage all members not to visit the club, undertake any work or maintenance of their boats and to avoid using the clubhouse facilities. The website will be updated as soon as we have any further information on relaxation of these requirements. Keep safe and we look forward to seeing you on the water later in the year.

Bookings are now being taken for training courses based on the assumption that the lock-down measures are relaxed. Please see more details  training news


Are you just starting out in dinghies? Then come along to us as we offer RYA approved training so that you can learn to sail safely with the latest methods. See the training pages from the menu above


We run a full racing programme all year round. There are 3 races on Sundays starting at 11.30am. From April to September there is also an evening series on Thursdays starting at 6.30pm


Swallows and Amazons? Yep, you can. Just cruise around the lake, spot the wildlife, canoers or fishermen. A gentle float around can be the most relaxing thing in the world, and Sutton Bingham is an ideal place for it. Just Sail.
