The Membership of Eling Sailing club covers all age groups from toddlers up to old salts. The ethos of the Club tends towards the cheerful, friendly, helpful, and casual (we only get dressed up in bow ties once a year).

The more experienced sailors are ever ready to help less experienced fellow members with advice on yachts, yacht maintenance and seamanship, and with hands-on assistance when needed, although this may cost you the odd pint or two. We can usually find an expert on most things nautical somewhere in the Club, frequently propped against the bar.

If this sounds like the sort of club for you, then turn up on any Thursday night and introduce yourself.  If after seeing us in the “too, too solid flesh”, you still want to join, download the form below this needs to completed and passed to the Membership Secretary with a passport photo attached.
