2. Recreational Activities At National Trust Properties: Sailing
Essential information for visitors
Things to do

Surf the coast

Country Code

Sailing Sailing is an appropriate activity with little environmental impact. There is little sailing on National Trust-owned inland waters, but on coastal waters adjoining Trust land it is considerable. Where there is pressure for more access to such waters, the Trust should consider these needs carefully.
Penberth Cove
Guiding principles
1. The National Trust welcomes sailing on its inland and adjoining coastal waters.
2. It should consider new opportunities on condition that use is compatible with wildlife conservation and the need to maintain some water bodies as 'remote' and tranquil.
3. Use should be managed by permit and licence where possible. 4. Charges for parking, berthing, launching and/or mooring may be made by the National Trust to contribute to management costs. Good practice
  • Liaise with clubs, outdoor centres etc. and form local access groups wherever possible.

Dinghy sailing
Recreational dinghy sailing has always been a popular activity at Fellowship Afloat. The Blackwater estuary is the perfect setting providing variety and challenge, with opportunities to sail in open water or to explore the saltings and creeks. Our fleet consists of Wayfarers, Picos, Laser 1s and 2s, Stratos's, a Dart 16and a gaff-rigged cutter. Our sailing season is generally between mid March to late October and youth groups, schools, special needs and development training groups enjoy the adventure and challenge. Fellowship Afloat is a Recognised Teaching Establishment (RTE) for the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) (telephone 0845 345 0400) - the UK Governing Body for sail training. Our activities are inspected by the Adventure Actvitiy Licensing Authority (AALA) (telephone 029 20 755715). I would like to enquire further about dinghy sailing courses at FACT.

10. WindRider: The Recreational Sailing Trimaran Company
WindRider is the top manufacturer of recreational sailing trimarans.We produce the WindRider 16, a stable and comfortable to sail
No longer does sailing demand most of your time, half your money and all of your upper body strength. From its head-turning design to its hands-free controls, WindRider has made sailing simple, affordable and attainable to anyone who wants to ride the wind. Ride In Comfort
It's been called "armchair" sailing. By removing the tiller in favor of intuitive foot pedal steering (press right to turn right, left to turn left), you face forward in a comfortable seat with a backrest, protected by the hull and with your hands free to control the single sheet, take pictures, enjoy a beverage - all at the same time! There is no hiking out or scampering back and forth across the deck. With no confusing tangle of ropes, tiller or mass of marine hardware requiring your constant attention, you are free to concentrate on the scenery, your companion or nothing at all. Simplicity is bliss. Ride In Safety
Look at the wide beam and sealed outriggers. Shy of using plastic explosives or a hurricane, you're not going to capsize or sink this boat. That's comforting knowledge for novices who want to develop skills, and for experts who want to test theirs. Slender hulls slice through the water and reduce hobby-horsing in the chop. Note, too, that the boom height allows for safe, effortless jibes. No more brain damage; at least not from the boom. The rugged polyethylene construction stands up to encounters with coral, docks, pilings and buoys that would shatter fiberglass. If there's a safer sailboat, it's one that never leaves the showroom.

All about Dinghy Cruising

What is dinghy cruising?
By 'dinghy cruising' we mean the use of a sailing dinghy for recreational travel over relatively long distances, generally with overnight stops. Most dinghy sailors use their boats for racing, or just for pottering, which usually means sailing for an hour or two in one patch of water. Few dinghy sailors seem to be aware that their boats are potentially capable of covering greater distances and carrying all the equipment that will be needed for overnight stops. I suppose that if you want a definition of dinghy cruising then you need to supplement it with a definition of a dinghy. In this context we take a dinghy to be a small (say less than about 20 foot (6.1m) length), open (i.e. no permanent cabin) sailing boat which does not have heavy stabilising ballast. However, we don't need to apply these conditions too rigorously, there are some boats which most people would think of as dinghies but which do have some ballast and there are some which have a tiny cabin but which are otherwise dinghy like in style. The HSC Wayfarers are certainly dinghies in all respects. There are also people cruising with what are basically rowing boats, perhaps with a small sail to provide relaxation on downwind legs only, this can reasonably be included as a form of dinghy cruising.

14. Yale Corinthian Yacht Club
Home of the Yale University sailing team, its facility is also open to members of the Yale community, and in the summer, to local residents for recreational sailing.
The Yale Corinthian Yacht Club, established in 1881, is the oldest collegiate sailing club in the world. Located on a beautiful rocky cove in Branford, CT., the club is a state of the art sailing facility and home to the Yale Varsity Sailing Team. The fleet consists of twenty-four 420 racing dinghies, augmented by FJs, Lasers, windsurfers and three safety launches. Our sailing area is located on open water and boasts what may be the finest wind and waves in all of college sailing. When the Westerly blows in the fall and spring, waves regularly build to 6 feet and the team practices surfing their boats down the breaking rollers. The Yale Sailing Team has produced scores of All-Americans, World Champions and Olympic Medalists in its long history. In fact, Yale sailors JJ Isler and Jonathan Mckee both won medals in the recent Sydney Olympics. The team is supported by an active alumni organization and a full time racing coach, Zack Leonard. In addition, the Yacht Club has recently undergone a renovation that replaced the aging club with a brand new club house. Email
