2024 - 6th May - 10am to 4pm

This summer, I learnt to sail
with Nigel, Tom C, Charlie G and Rhian

It was the best skill I have ever learnt.

It wasn’t easy, but like all skills, it comes with practise. Just remember, persevere and you can do anything! I certainly was not keen on falling into the reservoir or getting wet at first, but I had made friends during this course that made me feel confident and [I admit] less worried about capsizing. I would recommend this to anyone, because as long as you have fun and just enjoy, it, you’ll find yourself at a sailing event, having the time of your life!

About Us

Cransley sailing club is located in an idyllic valley just a few minutes from Kettering, off the A14 in Northamptonshire. The 40 acre reservoir is in a peaceful location with an abundance of wild life.

We pride ourselves on being a small friendly club and have a large number of family members. We also have an increasing number of youth members who have been introduced to sailing through our training group.

Established in 1967 Cransley Sailing Club is one of the prettiest inland sailing areas in the county located in an idyllic valley. This peaceful location has an abundance of flora and fauna and is a fantastic place to sail or to relax and soak up the peace and quiet.

We are a small, friendly, family orientated club, offering an active sailing programme for all ages and abilities.

As a recognised RYA Training Centre we offer our members dinghy, power boat and safety boat courses with expert tuition and guidance from our qualified RYA Instructors.

You don’t need to have to have your own dinghy or sailing kit to take part in our sailing courses as we have a selection of club boats and kit that our members can use.

If you are looking for a new club to join we offer competitive membership options.

An annual family membership costs 36p a day, an adult individual membership 27p a day and a youth/student membership is just 12p a day – far cheaper than most gym memberships!!

The club offers it’s members support to develop their sailing skills and build confidence on the water as well as offering a full programme of social events throughout the season.

We sail on Saturday and Saturday afternoons from March to November, Tuesday evenings from April to September We also add additional social sailing sessions and these will be publicised on the sailing calendar.

If you are in the area and fancy dropping by when we are open we would be more than happy to show you around or discuss ways in which we may be able to get you afloat.

We share the water with the fishing club and have an excellent relationship with them as they are considerate of us as we are of them.

The Model Sailors also use Cransley Sailing Club as their base.

Interested – then Join Us – new members are always welcome
