Whitefriars Sailing Club - The Friendly Sailing Club

UPDATE 27th December 2020 

Having reviewed the water levels at the sailing club as being dangerously high and launching being a risk in itself, the Exec have deemed it necessary to temporarily close the sailing club for any water based activities. This will be reviewed periodically with communication to follow.

If your current Tier restrictions allow travel to the club location then access to the club grounds for maintenance is authorised - please be aware it’s very wet (see club Facebook for pictures).

Apologies for any inconvenience this notice may cause. The safety of all is paramount.

Covid-19 Update - 2nd December 2020

We are delighted to announce the restarting of sailing and racing starting 2 December following the November lockdown. Advice has been taken advice from the RYA and we have reviewed the government guidance. Members must, however, adhere to some restrictions which are outlined on our ‘Members Booking and Access’ page

Friendly.  Accessible.  Fun.

Whatever your age or sailing ability, diehard 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.
