Silver Sailing – Come and take some regular timeout doing something you enjoy!
Silver Sailing is for everyone aged over 50+, normally everyone will have sailed before but it’s not essential – just let us know. It’s a 2-hour session where you can get help launching your boat, help and advise on sailing techniques and, of course, meet new people and be more social!
Boats are available for hire and all safety equipment is available free of charge. We have a disability access pontoon that makes getting into and out of boats very easy. Sessions run from 10 until 12 on Fridays followed by tea or coffee in the galley afterwards – Booking is preferred.
These sessions will start up again as soon as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. If you would like to be kept informed when this will be please click here

Nowka Bais Bangladeshi Boat Race
We are pleased to be one of the principle supporters of the Nowka Bais Bangladeshi Boat Race which is held annually at Midland Sailing Club. We run free sailing taster sessions for children and adults throughout the day, which are always popular. The event is attended by over 10,000 people mainly from the Bangladeshi community, and it’s a great opportunity to breakdown some of the barriers around sailing and widen access to the sport.
The next Nowka Bais is due to take place on Sunday 19th July 2020, and we hope that Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted by then. For more information click here
