We are ready!
Orford Sailing Club is a friendly open club for sailors of all abilities, with a membership of about 500. We are based on the Suffolk Coast, in the picturesque village of Orford within sight of the famous medieval castle. The club offers good facilities and an active dinghy and cruiser sailing programme
The sailing club has over 270 subscribing members (about 580 people in all). Its premises are a purpose-built Clubhouse, containing a clubroom with kitchen, changing rooms, showers and a race officers’ bridge. The dinghy park fronts onto the river, with a concrete ramp giving access at all states of the tide and there is a pontoon which dries out at low water. Locked storage for oars, outboard motors and petrol is available. There is also supplementary storage for some yacht tenders in a covered (but flooding!) shed on the quay. The club has no moorings available itself; application should be made to the New Orford Town Trust.
It is a family-oriented, friendly club which conducts its business with a minimum of formality. Most of the work of running it is done by its members. Tasks such as helping with the maintenance of the Clubhouse and dinghy park, administration of races, manning the rescue boat and catering for race day teas and club parties are carried out by members on a rota basis. Training for rescue boat manning and race officer duties is provided. Great emphasis is placed upon safety and seamanship and the Club is a RYA Training Centre, running regular dinghy and powerboat courses.
