Welcome to Milton Keynes Sailing Club
Welcome to Milton Keynes Sailing Club, formed in 1978 with the primary objective of promoting the sport of sailing in Milton Keynes. The club has a friendly and informal atmosphere, and visitors are always welcome to call into the club if they want see the facilities or need information regarding sailing membership. The club is affiliated to the RYA, and is an accredited training centre. RYA Level 1 and 2 courses in are run in both the spring and summer. You can sail throughout the year, however the canoe club and rowing clubs have a couple of exclusive evening sessions during the week and early sessions at the weekend. Racing takes place all day on Sundays throughout the year and on Wednesday evenings, light permitting. The club has its own Safety and Committee boats that are manned by RYA qualified Coxswains during all formal club water based activities. The club also has a number of single-handed and two-man dinghies available for use by club members, providing they can sail to the required RYA Level 2 standard.
Does your compound look like this? Can you still see your boat?
So come on down on Saturday morning 8th July. We need help moving your boat! If you can come and drag it out we will cut the grass. Then you can check your boat over and check its tied down nicely too.

Great Weekend for Vareo Open an MKSCYachts & Yachting: Illuminis RS Vareo Open at Milton Keynes Sailing Club:
by Nick Crickmore on 13 Jun10-11 June 2017
'We had a new venue for this year's circuit in Milton Keynes Sailing Club. The event took place this weekend and was generously sponsored by Illuminis Insight Software. RS Vareo sailors travelled from sailing clubs as far away as Emberton Park, Pennine, South Cerney and Oulton Broad to compete with the local fleet.'
Social Sailing Weekends 2017
I have arranged for two social sailing weekends again this year, Marconi Sailing Club on the Blackwater, and Cobnor Point at Chichester Harbour. The event last year at Cobnor Point was a great success and turned out to be a very relaxing and fun trip.
For both trips the camping areas are pitches only, Tents, vans, and caravans are welcome but no electric hook-ups are available. Each site also has showers and toilets available to campers along with other groups and sailors at the sites. I need to confirm the deposits and final costs for both trips, and will publish these when they are confirmed.
If you are interested in coming along, then please let me know by email, phone, or speak to me at the club.
