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

A futher message from our Commodore. 

I hope everyone is continuing to stay safe as COVID-19 continues to affect our daily lives. I like to be optimistic and hope that the scientists and politicians responsible for guiding us through this have a robust plan on how we can return to some kind of normality... Only time will tell.

 

Meanwhile the MSC GP and Sailing Committees are continuing to meet and discuss how activities at the club can safely resume once government starts to lift restrictions on travel. The RYA has recently announced that it is working on a “Return to boating strategy” but we will have to wait and see what guidance they can give us. In the meantime we are developing our own Red / Amber / Green approach which will hopefully enable us to get back onto the water for recreational sailing and paddleboarding in the near future. Dates will need to be confirmed however the plan may be something like this:-

 

RED

 

  • Strong social distancing to be enforced
  • Leisure / recreational sailing and paddleboarding resume
  • New members can be welcomed.
  • Maintenance activities permitted
  • No safety cover
  • Only use of club toilets permitted, no access to other areas. Change at home
  • Bar closed

 

AMBER

 

  • Full resumption of water based activities.
  • Training permitted
  • Minimal use of clubhouse facilities
  • Bar closed

 

GREEN

 

  • Resumption of normal operations

 

 

Obviously I wish I could give dates and more certainty on when each of these stages will occur, but this depends on factors outside of our control. In the meantime though please join in one of the virtual club racing sessions or join us in the virtual bar on a Wednesday evening - it'd be great to hear from you!
