Grassroots Sailing Club is an extension of Grassroots Sailing School. The club provides an inexpensive outlet for individuals who have taken a course and are either without a boat or are just looking for an opportunity to practice their newfound skills alongside experienced sailors without the expense of boat ownership. The sailing club offers access to keelboats for day sailing. We have recently incorporated online booking.
Grassroots Sailing Club is run by sailors & boaters who are passionate about their sport and are continually seeking out and providing opportunities for likeminded people to enjoy the sport and improve their skills at a reasonable cost. Some of the benefits of the club are regular access to boats in the 6-8 metre range, coupled with racing Tuesday nights and some weekends (great way to improve helming and sail trim skills). Gaining great experience quickly by sailing with more experienced club members, plus the camaraderie of making new friends in the sport you enjoy.
The club has a regular mentoring program (think of it as an apprenticeship) to hone the skills you learned in Basic so that you can competently, and confidently skipper a 6-9 metre boat with other club members. You will learn all about maintaining a boat and which is the best boat to purchase should you be so inclined (you won’t make the common mistake of purchasing the wrong boat)
