What to bring

Make sure you have the appropriate clothing for the weather. A wetsuit is encouraged, footwear you’re happy to get wet, layers if it’s cold, sun cream and a hat if it’s not and a buoyancy aid. Alternatively, the buoyancy aid can be rented from the club for a small fee.


During the summer, the snack bar will be open to purchase snacks, drinks, and lunch. The restaurant will also be open for dinner in the evenings.


Our Dunes and Stocker accommodation blocks offer a range of different rooms. From our admiral’s cabin through to the cadets’, there will be something suitable for everyone.


We have a large carpark onsite and down our causeway. However, if you are in a motorhome you will have to find alternative parking for overnight stays.
