How To Join



Minima Yacht Club is a Community Amateur Sports Club with membership open to all. Our sailing season runs from March to December with racing held on Sunday afternoons, and Saturday and Wednesday evenings.

In contrast with sailing, canoeing at Minima Yacht Club is purely recreational, and no racing events are organised. Informal paddling groups go out on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, and all day ‘Canoe Adventures’, which normally include lunch in a riverside pub, take place once a month on Saturdays.

Our Summer 2014 Sailing and Canoeing courses for beginners are now full. To go on the waiting list for our next courses in September,   please email

STOP PRESS Minima Yacht Club is taking part in the largest sailing race in the world on Saturday 21st September, starting at 11:00 hours. See:
