COVID-19 UPDATE: 7 OCTOBER 2020
We hope you are all keeping yourselves safe and well.
This is to inform you of the changes the club has implemented in response to the latest government guidelines and guidance from the RYA. We are requesting that everyone signs in when they vist the club as follows:
# The Club as put up 3 NHS Track and Trace QR codes. If you have the app on your phone, please scan one of the codes when you arrive at the club.
# If you cannot scan the code, please sign in by telling the OOD you are present, even if you are not racing. This gives us a record of everyone’s attendance, which we can give to NHS Track and Trace if requested. The attendance records will be kept for 3 weeks and then destroyed.
# Non-member guests must also be recorded. Please email Jeff Manning with the contact details of your guests and their time of arrival and departure. Note that only guests who are part of your extended family ‘bubble’ are allowed and only when there is no racing taking place. This restriction on guests enables us to implement social distancing effectively.

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.
