Dorchester Sailing Club collaborated with Goring Thames Sailing Club and Oxford Sail Training Trust at Farmoor to run a series of events over the winter and our sailors came out pretty convincingly on top over the series. You can see details of this and other events we collaborate on at oysailing.org.uk or on our own Youth Sailing Page
Bookings are now open for our Sunday youth training courses. Details and booking forms can be found on the training page of the website by clicking here. As Easter is very late this year there is a break in the dates for half term. The dates are on the information sheet, please check these work with your particular school term dates.
In a change to previous years, we are running our beginner groups in the mornings and intermediates and stage 4 in the afternoon. The youth race group will again run in the mornings with a chance to stay on and join in the main club racing as well. These Sunday courses are open to members only, however new members are welcome to join at the time of booking.
We also expect to run a 4 day course for beginners and intermediates during the Easter holidays that will be open to members and non members. but we have yet to finalise the dates. We expect to have the details of this available shortly and will email all members again at that time. Our current plan will be to run a similar course in August as well, but again we have yet to finalise dates.
If you have any questions at all please feel free to email us at email@example.com

Bookings for our 2017 Adult training are now open. You can find the details and a booking form on the training page of our website by clicking here. A lot of people have told us they intend to book onto this course so if you want to be sure of a place we suggest you act quickly.
Our regular informal Sunday morning coaching sessions are starting again on 22 January 2017 Check the calendar each week as some sessions have to be cancelled.
Any competent young & novice sailor is welcome – i.e. someone who has completed RYA Stage 3 for youth or RYA Level 2 for adults. We also welcome anyone who has not quite completed these, but feels confident with sailing.
The plan is:
9.30: Arrive and rig a boat, so that we can get on the water by 10.
10-11: Coaching. It is not a formal RYA course. The training will be run by a few experienced sailors, who will provide safety cover.
11.30: Possibility of participating in club race. The races will be run by the usual OOD/AOD/SBH team who will provide safety cover.
The OOD will run a second start for Youth/Novices if there is interest.
Participants use their own boats or hire club boats (double or single handed). A few points to note:
1. Responsibility for young sailors remains with their parents, who must be on site.
2. If you use a club boat please fill in a form, pay the usual fee and report any faults
3. You will need to put away your own boat.
If you have any queries/questions please email
