Welcome to Admiral's Club
Admiral's Club is being relaunched for 2016! The group was formed in 2007 to cater for those sailors who enjoy the social and more fun side of sailing, or want to develop to join the Wednesday racing.
Every Saturday from May to the end of July we will host a series of training, fun and social events or simply meet on the beach so we have other like minded people to sail with. Our events are free and open to all. We’re there to help each other so if you are rigging your boat for the first time or just need someone around to help you launch there’s a friendly helpful face.
Our events will show up in the calendar window on the right hand side of this page. On saturdays when there is not an organised event, members will still meet to rig up under the balcony around 1.00 - 1.30 and we will agree a course giving you a chance to sail in company. All activities are weather dependent.
Full details of this years calendar can be found on the current 2016 Admiral's Club page
Each year within our programme we aim to include a mixture of the following:
- Sailing development days*, covering rigging, launching, triangular courses, advice and guidance to develop your skills
- Fun events such as our Treasure Hunt & The Battle of Burghfield
- Novice racing events for those who like the idea but are not yet confident enough to sail on Wednesday evenings
- Social events, and Saturday afternoon get together's at the club
* run by the main club, with Recreational Sailors in mind. Watch out for details in the regular club e-newsletter Burghfield Breeze (if you don't already receive it, you can sign up Here
Who is Admiral's Club for?

- People who have completed their RYA Level 1 and 2 courses, and want to move on to the next stage
- People who want a safe environment to just sail
- People who want a more structured approach to learning to sail
- People who want to race - but are daunted by the apparent knowledge of those who race regularly
- Families - where some are less keen to get wet than others!
- People who want to use sailing as a good introduction to a new social scene

Wanting to move on to racing?
If you think that you might be ready to have a go at the racing scene, then please see the Racing pages
on the club web-site, where there are further details of the simple rules to learn, as well as information and guides to help make that initial step.
The Wednesday evening races
in the summer are a great way to get started in racing.
