About our Dinghy Section

We have a very active dinghy section at Tudor SC, offering a vast choice of events to suit most peoples needs. We aim to cater for all, providing friendly support for the novice sailor, and challenging cruises and competitions for the advanced sailor. The club aims to provide pathways to help all our sailors become more experienced, with training days in various disciplines. We host a variety of organised cruises, with regular evening social sailing during the summer months and technical long distance cruises for the more advanced sailor, whilst our busy racing programme gives our members a variety competitive opportunities.

The long shallow slipway allows launching at all states of the tide, making Tudor SC one of the most accessible clubs in Langstone Harbour. This key feature allows the club to offer a full and varied programme of events, including activities out in the Solent.

Our large compound provides secure dinghy storage, with in excess of 150 dinghies spaces. These are split into 'summer only' and 'all year round' spaces.

The club offers a full calendar of dinghy racing, with organised events all year round. In the summer months there can be up to 4 or 5 races per week. The winter racing programme is thwarted by tides and poor light with events once a fortnight for those who like to brave the cold conditions. The racing programme includes both racing series and individual trophy races, each tailored towards a different theme, from general club handicap racing, pursuit racing, long distance racing, short course racing, through to various regattas, there is something to suit everyone’s tastes.

And for those of you who prefer a more relaxing sail, organised cruising days are featured throughout the year, allowing you to explore the Solent, Langstone and Chichester Harbour's accompanied by a patrol boat for peace of mind. The harbour is one of the quietest sheltered waters on the south coast and is a real haven for wildlife. There are also regular informal dinghy cruises throughout the summer months, giving you an opportunity to cruise in company and learn from other sailors.

The club has a very active Cadet Section, who meet every Wednesday evening during the summer months. Whilst the club are unable to offer formal qualifications, help and guidance are given to our young cadets by experienced sailing parents, who hold an number of RYA instructor qualifications. There is a cadet racing series which is run in conjunction with the Wednesday evening sessions and a junior regatta towards the end of the season.

Club Owned Dinghies

In 2015 Tudor Sailing Club was awarded a grant of £10,000 by the Sport England Small Grants Programme, this was used to purchase 3 new club dinghies. The dinghies are 2 RS Fevas and 1 RS Quba. In line with the aims of the grant programme, the dinghies are intended to provide a pathway for older cadets to continue sailing once they become too big to comfortably use the Optimists. We also hope the boats will allow younger adults who do not yet own a boat to join the club and start sailing.

Since the inital club boats arrived in 2015 Tudor SC has further expanded its club boat fleet to include 3 RS Tera dinghies, a Topaz, a Wanderer and a Wayfarer. This has enabled members to go afloat with their families without the need to commit to purchase a boat of their own. We are proud to offer such a diverse fleet at rates that are very reasonable.
