Carsington is a large friendly sailing Club, which welcomes all those who are wanting to learn to sail, those who have sailed for years and those who just love being in a sailing environment.
Come and visit us and see first hand what the Club has to offer. During your visit you can discuss your sailing experience and needs with our staff.
If you already sail and have your own boat, why not arrange for a Day Sail and try out the water properly.
For all members the annual Membership Subscriptions run from February 1st of each year and end on January 31st the following year.
For new members, some reduction to the Subscription rates are made from July onwards to take into account the reduced opportunity to sail and use the Club facilities. Details of this will be provided at the time of joining.
Once a member, you not only have access to our fantastic Club house, but can also sail boats from our hire fleet, subject to suitable experience.
If you do not have the necessary experience, or wish to improve your sailing skills we can also help you with our extensive range of formal or informal Training Courses.

We are very fortunate to have a small team of staff who work very hard to keep on top of the tasks in and around the clubhouse.
However, not all of the work can be done by them alone. We are always grateful for any volunteers who would like to help to bridge the gaps which keeps the Club running smoothly.
Daytime on Wednesdays and Thursdays is when this team of willing and able volunteers carry out a wide variety of tasks.
If you have any particular skills or are just willing to join this team, please inform the office staff or any of the Flag Officers; we are always on the look-out for people who would like to help!
