Reading Sailing Club is situated on a large picturesque former gravel pit adjacent to the river Thames in Sonning near Reading. Dinghy sailing is the club's main activity with both beginners and experienced racers making use of our facilities.
We aim to offer an informal, friendly sailing club where members can race, cruise, and join in the various social events. Facilities for members and their families include a very attractive sailing lake, clubhouse with changing rooms, hot showers, a galley, large boat park, slipway, jetty, and grass lawned area.
The clubhouse has a clubroom including a galley area with cooking facilities and a small stock of refreshments. The changing rooms have hot showers and heated flooring during the winter.
A boat park is available for member's boats and there is a lawned area for picnics etc.
A limited number of guests can be accommodated. To prevent overcrowding, a guideline has been adopted allowing an annual total of 8 guest-days per membership. Members must sign their guests in and are responsible for their conduct while at the club. There is a charge of £10/day for guests sailing their own boat.
The sailing water covers the area from the clubhouse across to the line of orange buoys delineating the rowing strip and south to the far bank beyond the island. The buoy line must not be crossed.
