About Us

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 offer an informal, family friendly sailing club where members can race, cruise, and join in various social events. We welcome all levels of sailors from those competing at national level through to those just starting out.

Facilities for members and their families include clubhouse with changing rooms, hot showers, a galley, large boat park, slipway, jetty, and grass lawned area.

Club racing takes place throughout the year. Cruising is popular during Spring and Summer.

Members are welcome to use the lake to windsurf and canoe. Dinghy training courses are offered in early summer, many current members have found these courses to be an excellent introduction to the sport.

Reading Sailing Club is entirely volunteer run which allows us to keep costs down and ensure we are providing exactly what our members want.
