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 2015 sailing and canoeing season starts on the 15th March, although the Club bar is open on Wednesday and Sunday evenings throughout the winter. If you are interested in membership, please email membership@minimayc.co.uk

 Bart's Bash Record!

Over 30 boats from Minima Yacht Club and Thames Sailing Club came to the start line for Bart's Bash event in memory of GBR Olympic Hero Andrew 'Bart' Simpson  on Sunday 21st September - 22 boats completed the full course of 5594 metres and 6 boats completed over 1000 metres of the course. This means that we hit our target for the Guinness World Record Attempt. We also raised £325 in donations for the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation! See full results on the Bart's Bash Website and scroll down to read 'A View from the Middle of the Fleet'  in the Recent Events Section below.
