Welcome to Sutton Sailing Club
Due to the issues of corona virus COVID 19, the committee of Sutton Sailing Club have reviewed activities of the club and have suspended organised activities of racing and training until at least 30th April, but we are permitting members to sail independently in the meantime.
Please read COVID 19 Notice (21/3/20) which supercedes conflicting information published elsewhere in this website, and provides guidance on how the club facilities are to be used in the meantime.
Sutton Sailing Club is above all a friendly club. We offer excellent sailing facilities for beginners through to those of a good club racing standard, and compliment these with a varied social programme.
The club provides the opportunity to sail throughout the year whether you wish to race competitively (Sundays and Wednesday evenings daylight permitting) or just potter around on a very attractive stretch of water in the heart of Sutton Coldfield. It is a place to meet with people who share a passion in all things sailing related.
The club is an RYA Recognised Training Centre where we introduce and train those new to the sport, and encourage those beyond the first steps to improve and gain higher skills in the very broad activity that is sailing. To support our training programme there are a good number of club boats, which are also available for hire by members, avoiding the need to buy a boat when first starting out.
Birmingham Model Yacht Club's main interest is in sailing and racing model yachts - they are a thriving part of the club and a very accessible way for anyone to further an interest in sailing, especially if the physical demands of dinghy sailing no longer appeal.
Hopefully you will find all the information you are looking for in the pages of this site, but if you would like a chat with a member of the club about trying sailing, learning to sail or joining the club, please give Rob Allen a ring on 0121 354 5562 and he will be very happy to advise you.
