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, 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 events every Saturday afternoon from end of May to beginning of September 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.
