Club boats*


TMSC has a good range of club boats that are used for training courses and on cadet nights. Club boats can also be
hired by club members during officially organised club events. The hire charge is £7.50 per race and for sailors under 18 years of age the hire charge is £3.50 per race.

To hire a boat please email the dinghy secretary in advance on [email protected] or talk to the dinghy secretary or duty officer on the day.

Hire fees should be paid to the race hut team before you go afloat and any defects or damage should be logged in the
appropriate book in the race hut.

Our range of club boats includes:


The Optimist – a small, single-handed dinghy intended for use by children up to the age of 15


The Topper – a single-handed, entry level boat. Ideal for learning how to sail and race.


The Pico – a small boat used primarily for training and day sailing. Can be sailed single handed or by two children. Comes equipped with both a mainsail & a removable jib, but usually sailed with just the mainsail.


The RS Feva – a 12′ dinghy suitable for two young sailors, adult & child teams or sailing single-handed. Comes with main, jib & spinnaker so good for learning how to manage more than one sail.


The RS Vision – a fairly stable 15’ two-man boat also which can also be sailed single-handed or with two trainees and an instructor. Can be sailed with two or three sails. Good for racing.


The Wanderer – a stable & roomy 14′ dinghy with a large jib & spinnaker. Rear-main sheeting.
