Welcome

Maidenhead Sailing Club is a member only club, located just to the North of the Thames side town of Maidenhead, on a gravel pit.  We have available to us 51 acres of water that overlooks the countryside of Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.  Sailing and Paddlesports are available all year round, with events and coaching and available.  We are a family oriented club, with sailing to satisfy all members of the family. There is a strong Youth and Juniors section.  It is possible to sail your own boat or use your paddleboard, kayak etc   at anytime.  Boats and boards are available to hire dependant on ability....  New members are always welcome.

Picture of the day

 

While we all miss real sailing so much, why not enjoying Virtual Sailing and race each other every week on the screen? The RYA has enabled 1 year VIP access for clubs in the videogame Virtual Regatta, and we will be running races every Thursday evening and Sunday at 8pm.

The game is actually quite fun and free to play. You can create an user and start playing right away. Just access to this url below, and you can either play from your browser in a computer, or download the app on your phone. https://www.virtualregatta.com/en/inshore-game/  You can start playing now and enjoying Virtual Sailing at your leisure at home :) 

We are looking at Custom Races for Maidenhead Sailing Club members only every Thursday evening at 8pm. If you are interested in participating on our Virtual Regatta Racing Series:

  • Install the game, create an user with your nickname, and start practising!
  • There will be 3 races every Thursday and Sunday, from 8.00pm to 8.30pm approximately. First race will start at 8.00pm sharp, and the other two will start right away with a couple of minutes break between races.
  • To join the Thursday Club race, just click on Custom Race, and in the section Join, click on the icon with a lock. The code to join the private races will be available from WhatsApp group, but it only works if the race has been created and it is about to start
  • If you are interested on joining Virtual Regatta races as a racer, please drop me an email and join the whatsapp group This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 
  • If you are interested on helping organising races on Thursday (as a sort of Virtual Race Officer), please also contact me, and I will give you the club credentials to organise the custom race, so if I'm not available, someone else can do it. Good thing here is that the one organising the race is also racing, and with some additional perks like Auto VMG.
  • We can capture results and create our own Maidenhead Sailing Club Virtual Racing Series
