We are now open for leisure sailing, free taster sessions and training, however some restrictions are in place as we are following government guidelines and RYA advice.
Due to the latest Government guidelines, we will now be implementing and encouraging the use of the NHS COVID-19 Track and Trace phone app here at Aldridge Sailing Club.
The NHS COVID-19 app has a feature which allows users to quickly and easily 'Check in' to venues by scanning that venue's unique QR code. This information stays on the users phone.
Any visitors to Aldridge Sailing Club who choose to 'Check In' using the official NHS QR code will not need to provide us with their contact details. If there is a confirmed case associated with our venue then a message will be sent to the relevant app users with the necessary public health advice.
Everyone coming to the club will be encouraged to 'Check in' using the NHS COVID-19 app, using our unique QR code which has been displayed prominently around the site.
Use of the NHS COVID-19 app will help the NHS identify and notify people who may have been exposed to the virus. Hopefully, the use of this app will help us avoid the reintroduction of lockdown measures and support the country in returning to, and maintaining, a more normal way of life.
You can download the NHS Test and Trace app via your regular App Store.
Anyone unable to use the app will have to enter their contact details in our visitors book which will be on a table under the new shelter in front of the club house.
Thank you for your help with this.
We offer free taster sessions to anyone interested in getting out on the water and finding out what Aldridge Sailing Club is all about.
We sail on a lake known locally as the Swag.
Its relatively small size makes it an ideal place to learn to sail and also provides a challenging and competitive race venue. Training is available all year round. We hold races on Fridays and Sundays throughout the year and Wednesday evenings during the summer months.
The club site features a large dinghy park, car parking areas, two slipways with jettys and one dedicated safety boat slipway. We have recently added a boat repair workshop.
Our clubhouse, situated alongside the pool, features excellent facilities including:
- Changing rooms with hot showers
- Function room with Bar
- Fully equipped kitchen
Our membership options include junior, single, student, family and social. If you want to find out more about joining, taster sessions or training, please click here to contact us using our contact form or send an email to [email protected].
