Sailing Committee

The sailing committee is responsible for organizing all of the sailing events and activities at the club. It is chaired by the Rear Commodore Sailing and consists of representatives from all of the major classes and groups within the club.

If you have any questions or suggestions just have a chat at the club or drop the appropriate representative a mail. We are always looking for help so if you would like to be more involved, please let us know.

Rear Commodore Sailing:


Principal Race Officer:

Ian started in Oppies many many years ago. His mother ran a Schools' Sailing base on Filby Broad in Norfolk so sailing was pretty much inevitable for him. After Oppies he sailed, Toppers, Mirrors and then 420s and Lasers. He taught at the National Sailing Center in Cowes for few years during which time winter sailing consisted of a Merlin Rocket, and International 14 and an Enterprise. He then carried on teaching at Queen Mary while at College.

He joined joined Burghfield with his family when their kids were ready to start sailing. He says that the club just felt right for the family when they walked through the gate and they have not been disappointed. Having started in Oppies all those years ago, he seems to have come full circle and spends a lot of his time with the Oppies again now.
