About Us

Welcome

We are a family friendly club with a diverse membership, a lively social calendar and an extensive sailing programme of racing events and ‘on-the-water’ activities. Racing is enthusiastic without being too serious, but club members also include canoeists, leisure sailors and cruiser sailors as well as safety boat handlers and social members.

We run a full sailing programme from April to October. We encourage young people by offering junior membership and also have a fleet of Club boats that can be borrowed by any competent members.

Our welcoming club is always pleased to receive enquiries (Application Form) from prospective members and we are especially keen to hear from active sailors who will join the weekend racing and contribute to the development of the Club. For further information please contact the Club Secretary Justine Sykes at sec.wells.sailing@gmail.com

Our Clubhouse and facilities are situated at the East End of Wells Harbour, with panoramic views over the salt marshes and creeks of North Norfolk. To help decide whether we are the Sailing Club for you, come along at the weekend and introduce yourself – the bar is open on Sunday lunchtimes all year round!

Ethos

Before you decide to join Wells Sailing Club you might like to know a bit about how the club works. The club’s vision is to actively promote sailing and ‘on the water’ pursuits for the community, by making best use of our resources in a safe, sustainable and friendly way. We actively encourage younger members to get involved at all levels. The club consists mostly of people with an active interest in sailing, sail racing, pleasure sailing in dinghies or yachts, canoeing and many other water-based activities. The club relies on self help to keep costs low and maintain an inclusive and friendly atmosphere. To this end we hope that all members contribute time to support the club. This could be running a weekend’s racing as the race officer, joining a committee, working behind the bar, preparing a bacon sandwich for sailors coming off the water or being involved in organising a social event. If you have a particular skill you would like to volunteer then please let us know. Most work is carried out voluntarily by members of the club but for large and highly skilled jobs the club will employ professionals.
