Whitefriars Sailing Club - The Friendly Sailing Club

RYA Club of the year finalist 2023

Friendly.  Accessible.  Fun.

Whatever your age or sailing ability, die-hard racer, newcomer to sailing or you simply love mucking about on the water, here at The Whitefriars Sailing Club our focus is on making sailing fun and accessible for all.

Situated on the stunning Cotswold Water Park, Whitefriars is run by the members for the members.  We believe that by striking a healthy balance between competition and fun we can give everyone access to the same opportunities to learn, improve and participate as much or as little as they want.

That’s why we offer a diverse range of on and off the water activities, including racing, cruising, an extensive RYA training programme and a whole host of social activities for all the family.  Proud to be one of the top clubs in the UK for our Sailability capabilities, our friendly team of enthusiastic volunteers support this varied programme throughout the year.
