Members are required to book their place on the Web-Collect system for each session that they wish to attend – there is no cost for the booking.  Click the Sign Up button above.  This is to ensure that we have a record & contact details of those intending to sail, whilst certain restrictions remain in place in respect of the control of Corona Virus.


Dinghy sailing can be an great 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.

Our Junior Training Programme for 2020 has now been launched and full details on how to participate and register for a place can be viewed here.

The Club will be running several Adult Training courses in the Spring.  For more information and how to apply for a place click here.


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.
