Dinghy sailing can be an enjoyably gentle experience as part of a pleasant day sail or for the more hardened adrenaline junkies, it can be an energetic and challenging affair.

Dinghies are small boats which you can sail on your own (single-handed), in a pair (double-handed), or with a group of friends depending on whether you enjoy the social aspect of sailing or you prefer the challenge of being in total control.


Getting started


Getting into dinghy sailing is relatively inexpensive and simple. The club maintains a fleet of boats that can be used by any member by prior arrangement.

The club will be running an an RYA Adult Stage 1 (start sailing) course over two Saturdays in May – for more information contact Sue Shute by emailing iomyctraining@gmail.com.


Supervised sailing


For those who wish to spend more time on the water to improve their skills, the club holds regular supervised sailing sessions that are open to all club members where instruction is available upon request and safety boat cover is provided. For more information contact sailing@iomyc.com.
