The new boats are Gull Trainers supplied by Hartley Boats. These are superb, being rugged and versatile and well suited for training and coastal use. It is ideal for teaching students of all capabilities and has been described as the best in its class – for use as a general cruising boat for up to four people and also an exhilarating racing boat for the more adventurous solo sailor.

Sailing is a sport with many possibilities, so whether you are racing for Gold medals like Ben Ainslie, or enjoying the peace and beauty of the local creeks, sailing provides great opportunities for all.” says Doug MacEwen Commodore SWFYC
