Poole Yacht Club Dinghy Fleet

Poole Yacht Club has a diverse range of racing dinghies. The fleets with their own race starts are Osprey, Laser, Yachting World Day Boat, GP14 and Hobie 16. All other dinghies race as part of our three handicap fleets: fast, medium and slow.

If you would like to form a new dinghy fleet please contact Katie Hooper Katie.Hooper@pooleyc.co.uk

Races are as competitive or relaxed as each participant wants to make them. We have Olympians, passionate hobbyists, and novices in our races.

Each competitor is looking for something different. Some look to win, some to improve, some just to enjoy being out on the waves in the company of like minded people.

The racing season runs from Spring to Christmas and new competitors can join at any time, on payment of the race fee. During the Spring and Summer months we race every Monday, Thursday and some Saturdays, please see the calendar for full details. During the Winter we race only on Saturdays.

Adult Training

We offer adult beginner sailing training on a Wednesday evening April to October.

There's no expected level of ability, we will teach you to sail in the sheltered waters next to the club.

To begin, a RYA qualified instructor will be in the boat with you. As you get more confident the instructor will be in another boat alongside you. Your tutor will be beside you guiding you through every step and help you build your confidence on the water.

Your club tutor will soon have you ready to go out on your own, either to take part in our exciting and varied racing season, or just relaxing confidently out on the waves.

This training is run under our status as an RYA Training Centre. All our training and safety boat cover is provided by qualified volunteers.

Contact the Office to sign up.

Improvers Class

Been a sailor for a while, but feeling a bit nervous going out on your own?

On Monday evenings we offer two fleets of Adult Improver training sessions, to build confidence in boat handling and provide a sailing and social experience for those who don’t yet feel ready to join in with our racing programme.
