Clacton-on-Sea Sailing Club is situated at the extreme eastern boundary of Clacton-on-Sea within the Holland-on-Sea Country Park.

Sixteen miles from Colchester in North East Essex the Club is only 9 miles from the national Motorway/Dual Carriageway system.

Facing South, prevailing South Westerly and North Easterly winds make for good sailing.  Launching and landing are possible at almost all states of the tide, with concrete ramps  and across a firm sandy beach to the water's edge.

The boat compound is fully fenced with room for 100 boats, ample car parking, generous camping space and within easy reach of the shore.


For non-sailors there is the sandy beach, and for spectators the roomy Club balcony gives an uninterrupted view of the whole sailing and racing area.

The Club house has a well stocked bar and good catering facilities; with meals and beverages at Club prices.


In the past the Club has successfully hosted many events including European and National Championships, for, most recently, Snipes, (twice), and in previous years Condors, Toppers and Signets.

Every year there is a comprehensive Sail Training Programme catering for absolute beginners to advanced racing.

Through the winter a lively Social Programme exists with most events having some sailing content.

New and temporary members are always welcome.

For important race meeting the club can provide from within it's own and individual members' resources:

  • A well equipped safety fleet, all with radio communications and manned by experienced safety boat coxswains and crew.
  • A committee boat and spectator boat if required
  • Experienced and enthusiastic beach crews
  • Special Catering arrangements

All up to a maximum of 30 competing boats
