Great sailing events

As an OSC member the club's 60 foot yacht is available for you to cruise the harbour for half-days, evenings and whole days. Or you can venture offshore with coastal trips over a weekend or longer. See the 'What We Do' page.

Relax on board with friends

Why not join one of our regular outings on the harbour? Make yourself at home on the yacht. Swim, cook dinner (or just watch others do it) or just relax with friends watching the sun set as the yacht lies at anchor. See the 'What We Do' page.

Go on sailing holidays somewhere a bit more exotic

Every year the Club's yacht takes time off to visit locations a bit off the beaten track - see some wildlife, explore some more remote anchorages - under the supervision of an experienced skipper. See the 'Expeditions & Holidays' page.

Sail Training

We run in-house cost price sailing courses for members - probably noticeably cheaper than regular sailing schools, because we think that fun and safety go hand in hand.

Whether you've just decided to learn to sail or you're already a proficient sailor, there's a schedule of progressive courses from RYA "Start Yachting" weekend, through "Competent Crew", up to RYA "Yachtmaster Coastal", and even "Yachtmaster Ocean" Theory. We also offer Yachtmaster exam preparation. See the 'Sail Training' page.


In the interests of safety, the yacht will always be under the supervision of a club-approved skipper.

For the club's Social sailing events, the Skipper is supplied by the Club. If you would like to use the Club yacht for your own social events or for group mile-building cruises, we can put you in touch with our Sailing Coach, who will be happy to make sure that your event is run safely (sample costs)

Only registered members of the Ocean Sailing Club are allowed on board the yacht for any sailing event. For more information, just email or call us.
