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.

Learn to Sail at Minima Yacht Club
Our 'Begin Sailing' course for members which started on Sunday 14th September is now full. Our next course will start in May/June 2015.
Bart's Bash Record Attempt!
Over 30 boats from Minima Yacht Club and Thames Sailing Club came to the start line for Bart's Bash event 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 Guiness World Record Attempt. Our two independent witnesses counted the boats on the water and checked the Sailing Secretary's GPS measurement of the course. We have uploaded our results to Bart's Bash computer and wait for formal confirmation of the record. [See also John Forbes' inimitable report in the Recent Events section below.]
