Welcome to Yorkshire Ouse Sailing Club

The Water is here for Everyone.

The club is centered around competitive club Dinghy  Racing and training with a history dating all the way back to 1938. Our unique location gives us access to the River Ouse which is arguably a better experience than sailing on the sea or a lake, and is ultimately more rewarding. We welcome people of all ages* and abilities** to get involved and also have a number of rowers, paddle-borders and canoeists who use our slipway and facilities.

  • Learn to Sail in a friendly safe environment.
  • Learn to improve with the Junior League or Beginners Days.
  • Watch your family with fantastic river views and facilities.
  • Progress to Regional Events and enjoy the social side of the club.

* minimum age restrictions apply to RYA courses, please contact us for details. ** we do not have specialist accessibility equipment and our location has steep river banks, rising river levels and a flowing river. Other RYA training centers and clubs specialize in accessibility and may be able to support specific needs better.
