About Ashdown Sailing Club

Ashdown Sailing Club is a friendly club with members ranging from very experienced sailors, to novices who have never set foot on a boat before.
The club puts crew and boat owners together on club cruises and rallies, both in the Solent area and further afield.
Broadly speaking, new members would fit into one of 3 categories:

Novice or little experience
If you have no experience at all of sailing you can learn the ropes in a relaxed environment. Read a report from a novice on his first cruise.

Boat owner (experienced or not)
If you own a boat you get to enjoy the company of other like minded sailors. If you wish you can be put in touch with members to join you on cruises as crew. If you wish to sail with your own crew, that's fine.

Experienced sailor
If you can sail but don't own a boat ASC provides sailing opportunities on the south coast and overseas without the costs of chartering.
Ashdown Sailing Club creates an environment for sharing sailing skills and know-how in a fun and supportive way.

The costs for all are minimal, and every member builds up useful sailing contacts. Membership is only £30 per year if paid before the end of February, £40 if paid after that. There is no joining fee. When sailing, food, drink and mooring costs are split.

Join Ashdown Sailing Club

In common with most clubs, you need to be proposed by an existing member to join Ashdown Sailing Club. If you can pop along to a club night this is no problem.

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at:

The Godstone Club, The Green, Godstone, Surrey RH9 8DY 

We have a number of members who have not been to Godstone but have been vetted on their first weekend sailing or by having met a member locally.

Once your application form is completed a member will be in touch with you and you can pay your membership fee electronically.

We always welcome enquiries from potential new members with or without boats.
