Location: York RI Sailing Club is situated in the village of Bishopthorpe just to the south of York. See the Location Map for more details and directions.
Season: Our sailing season runs from early March to the end of October. There is racing on Sundays throughout the season and a Wednesday evening series runs from May to August. See the Racing section for more details.
Boats: Members sail a wide variety of boats at the club including GP14s, RS200s, Lasers, Larks, Graduates, Streakers, Toppers and a Wanderer. There are currently four club boats that are available for members to use: two new RS Visions, two GP14s, one RS200 and two Toppers.
Cruising & other activities: We hold Saturday Sailing days during the summer which vary from a “try a boat” day to themed racing and BBQs. The club has an annual trip to Ullswater in the Lake District in mid-July, where members take their own and club boats for a weekend of sailing on some open water. Key features of this weekend are the Saturday night football match (normally in the dark) and the Sunday 5am sail for the hardcore insomniacs!
Training: See the ‘Training’ section for details of the training activities at the club.
