I’m a relative newcomer to Cambridgeshire, having spent my formative years in South London. The only lake there was a reservoir originally built to supply the Croydon Canal in the 1820s. It was here that I was introduced to a Heron dinghy, built in the school wood-working class by a keen teacher. Whilst inspired by the boat sailing majestically around the lake; I was less enthusiastic when the principles of aerodynamics were expounded! I wanted to sail; not to have yet another school lesson!
I never did learn to sail and once retired thought I must have a go!
For me, whether it’s just cruising around the lake watching the trees change colour or starting a race last & maintaining that position throughout. It’s just great fun!

On Saturday the 14th May we will be joining in an RYA National event called Push the Boat Out, which is your opportunity to have a free taster session at your local club and try out this fantastic sport that many of us already enjoy every week. Whether you are a member of the club or not, aged 8 or 80, you are welcome to come down and give sailing a try. We'd be especially pleased to see parents of children who have been on our courses so you can have a go at this fantastic sport that your children have already taken advantage of.
We will have our training fleet of Toppers and Picos available and will be launching the latest additions to our fleet, two brand new Topper Argo double handed dinghies. We will have committee members and instructors on hand to chat to on all aspects of sailing, from cruising to racing and how to get into it if you've never tried it.
There will be free tea and coffee throughout the afternoon while you chat and watch what goes on on the water.
Start time is 2pm and we look forward to welcoming you to our club.
