Club Training

The club runs a variety of training sessions for all levels of experience.


Junior sailing at Burghfield is centered around the Optimist, the Topper and the Laser 4.7. Take a look at the Junior & Youth Sailing for more information.


There are a number of Youth training days scheduled throughout the year. The dates for these are still being finalized but will be published soon.

In the mean time, please have a look at the youth sailing area.


From April each year BSC offers Sailing Development Days aimed at those members who have not been sailing all that long. The Admiral's Club. For further details, click here.

Class Training

Many of the classes sailed at Burghfield run training days where like minded sailors can get together and learn from each other or from top class coaches. Use the main menu on the left and select "Fleets and Classes" to navigate to the relevant class which you sail for more information on your class / handicap fleet.

Hints and Tips

As well as the more organised training, there is also lots of information on the web-site to provide you some hints and tips and guidelines. These tips are typically more oriented to helping pople understand and get better at the racing scene, rather than how to sail in the first place. See here for a good starting point to the different tips aimed at newcomers to racing.
