Ely Sailing Club is based at Roswell Pits in Ely, Cambridgeshire. We have over 35 acres of attractive fresh water with islands, trees and banks. The sailing is always interesting, challenging and fun. There is dry launching directly from jetties, and crews are able to sail without getting their feet wet. We are a recognised Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training centre providing a range of sailing courses, powerboat courses and first aid tuition. We have also been awarded RYA Champion Club status for our race coaching. The club is family orientated and run by its members, for its members, with good value and enjoyment for all.

Due to the sailing restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 lockdown the 2020 Sailing Calendar has been withdrawn for the time being.


Saturday Afternoon Rescue Boat Volunteers Required

As per the plans for Moving forward with safe sailing the club is requesting volunteer to man the rescue boat on Saturday afternoons, 1pm - 5pm.  If you're able to help out then please contact Simon, our Commodore HERE.

Rescue boat guidance is available HERE.

Volunteers will be shown in the register HERE, so that you'll know if there is rescue boat cover.

COVID-19 - Moving forward with safe sailing

Latest updates to the club's Covid-19 measures are HERE.

The club is seeking to  offer some safety boat cover on Saturday afternoons from 1 to 5 pm.


We are asking for member's support in this initiative to get more people on the water, as we felt the less experienced sailors would be more inclined to take boats out. 

So if you are prepared to help out please could you contact Simon, ESC Commodore HERE.

COVID-19 - All training courses for 2020 cancelled

Regrettably all training courses for 2020 have been cancelled.  Please watch the website for details of 2021's courses which should be published in March.
