About the club

Henley Sailing Club is a small, family-friendly sailing club set on a picturesque stretch of the river Thames. The club was formed in 1896 and has flourished ever since.

We race on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, in a variety of dinghies and find the river often provides interesting winds and challenging conditions. We also hold fun sailing days and offer an excellent social calendar for sailors and non-sailors alike, with BBQs, camping, suppers and Sunday afternoon tea on the lawn.

Novice and expert, young and old, and the rusty are welcome to join the club and to borrow one of the club’s dinghies, free of charge. Our more experienced sailors run an in-house coaching programme and when you are ready to race, there are special races for juniors, lady helms and novices.

The club’s facilities include a club house with a fully equipped kitchen, a furnished lounge area with panoramic windows overlooking the river, and a small bar for relaxing with a drink after sailing. To the outside there are attractive riverside lawns, changing rooms with hot showers, boat store and car parks.
