Who we are
Sully Sailing Club is a small friendly club dedicated to dinghy and cat sailors, located in Sully Bay, near Cardiff, South Wales. We have a small modern Clubhouse with disabled access, hot showers, and a committee room, alas no bar. We also have what we claim to be the longest slipway in the Bristol Channel, which allows us to sail at virtually any state of the tide. The only power-boats allowed in the club are our own safety boats.
We race every Sunday through the season, with handicap races for both the 'fast' and 'slow' fleets. In this way we are able to offer competitive racing to all regardless of the class of boat you sail. For the more adventurous, who venture further out beyond Sully Island, there is some of the best wave sailing in the UK. The club holds "Dragon Sail" status awarded by the Welsh Yachting Association, and we run Youth Training Courses commencing each June. These cover a six week period sailed every Thursday evening. Anyone interested in taking part should contact the clubs Training Officer.
Probably the home of the longest slipway in the Bristol Channel.
If you don't own a boat but are keen to sail we can help. There are opportunities to crew in multi hand boats or we have club Toppers, Lasers and a Topaz. As well as the training we offer for juniors we also offer evening "taster sessions" for adults interested in taking up sailing - contact the club secretary Roger Dykes if you are interested. There are a variety of single and multi-hand boats at the club offering a wide variety of performance and skill levels.
Racing and cruising for all, regardless of experience...
