Ardleigh Sailing Club
Ardleigh Sailing Club is a thriving and friendly club situated just outside Colchester, Essex and close to the Suffolk border. The 136 acres of peaceful and secluded water provide an excellent resource for racing, training or just cruising.
There are many facilities for family sailors, racers and those who just like to relax and socialise. An abundance of wild life is attracted to the water for its protected location.
The clubhouse includes recently refurbished changing rooms, wet and dry lounges and galley. The clubhouse and boat berths are conveniently close to the water and there are two concrete slipways for easy launching.
Racing - competitive racing occurs all year round amongst the many different types of dinghy at the club. Sunday morning and Wednesday evening series are both keenly contested. Newly introduced for 2008 - Friday afternoons will also have a race programme. In the winter months, the 'Winter' and 'Frostbite' series see a large influx of visiting boats to take advantage of excellent and closely contended racing.
