British Airways Silver Wing

Based at Wraysbury on a 47 acre lake, one mile north-west of the M25/A30 Junction 13, the Club successfully combines instruction and recreational sailing with a strong racing ethos. Boat parking, launching and clubhouse facilities are second to none.

Racing is scheduled on every Sunday throughout the year and on Tuesday evenings in the summer months. The Enterprise fleet is the most competitive in the area and host to the Enterprise Assoc. Thames Valley Area race training programme. There is a thriving Laser fleet and growing Solo fleet. Many other classes are raced on handicap.

The Club has a wide variety of its own boats from which you can choose, to match your ability and personal preference. Unlimited use of club boats (first come - first serve), is free to members in their first year, and only £10 a year thereafter.

TOPPER: Ideal for the young - single seater Dinghy, the Topper guarantees to deliver something for everyone! She is so simple to rig and sail.

OPTIMIST: Great first time boat for the young, extremely stable.

SUNFISH: For those of you want to reminisce about the Caribbean.

LASER PICO: A breakthrough for beginner and family sailing, it's simple, fun and cool. Plus it's exceptionally strong.

LASER: Designed for speed-single seater Dinghy - good for the more experienced but easily sailed by the novice in suitable weather. The world's most popular sailing dinghy.

LASER (radial): As above but with a 5.7m Radial sail (compared to the 7.5m above), for use in strong winds, or for those not quite heavy enough for a full laser sail.

MEGABYTE: An excitingly fast yet stable boat with the option to take a crew.

ENTERPRISE: Good all round boat from the novice up to the expert - two seater Dinghy.

WANDERER: Good for the novice or for those who want a more stable boat, with a spinnaker.

WAYFARER WORLD GRP: New design of wayfarer - the well known teaching boat. With a large but easy to use asymmetric spinnaker. The largest club boat. Easily fits you and your family.

All the club boats offer the benefit of "getting started" without the need for your own when you join. On the other hand, if you do own a boat, you are more than welcome to sail or race it at the club, no matter what class it may be. If you choose, arrangements can be made to berth the boat in the boat park (space permitting).
