About Gunfleet Sailing Club

The Gunfleet Sailing Club is situated at Holland on Sea, on the Essex coast, next door to the well known holiday resort of Clacton. It is a small and very friendly Club that caters for all types of sailing - whether it be racing, cruising or just pottering. All classes of dinghy are welcomed and at present the following are based at Gunfleet: Laser, GP14, RS200, RS Aero, Blaze, Solo, Europe, Hobie 405, Comet, Topper, Topaz, Mirror and Sea Ranger. The Club boasts a Clubhouse with licensed bar and galley, along with changing rooms, showers and toilets. There is also a sail locker, and to aid launching and recovery an electric winch has been installed. The Club has a full programme of sailing and social events, all designed for the whole family. There is an active Cadet and Otter section, with a number of events specifically for Cadets and Otters; one of the strengths of the Club is the great way young and old mix so well together. The racing is light-hearted and the cruises provide an opportunity to sail further afield in company. The Club has two Rescue Boats that are always present when racing or cruising takes place.
