Welcome to Monklands Sailing Club. 2015
The Club was founded in 1958 and has enjoyed a long history of excellence in the sport of sailing, The Club actively encourages family memberships, there is very few sports that can involve family participation. In the past the club has produced both World and Olympic Champions and current members also have great success in many of the away regattas.
For racing we have large and active fleet of Flying Fifteens. This is the clubs preferred “weapon of choice”, regularly seeing number of boats doing battle on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. The handicap fleet comprises mainly of GP14’s & Enterprises with sail training carried out in the clubs own Wanderer & Topper dinghies.
The primary aim of the club is to promote competitive racing and to support sailing at all levels, to that end we have a full racing calendar with two races on Sundays and an evening series on Tuesdays during the summer. There are also Cup Regattas through out the season and travelling events which the club regularly attends.
