Welcome to Silver Wing Sailing Club.
We are a small club situated near Staines Middx on a 60 acre lake. We have a growing membership with a very strong family atmosphere. We have always had a strong racing ethos but at the same time like to encourage new novice sailors to our club. You could say we are a family club that races. We have recently become a fully recognised RYA training centre and also have a very keen and active kids section which is a great hit with the younger ones. We have a great selection of club boats available for you to start sailing and develop your skills into club racing. As part of the British Airways clubs when you join the Sailing club you have access to a wealth of other activities one of which is Dragon boating which also takes place at Silver Wing Sailing Club lake.
Sailing calendar is now in full swing, with spring poking its head round the corner why not come and dust off you boat and join us on the water.
Work party maintenance day now 6th April
This date has changed from the initial advertised date of the 9th March due to local flooding conditions etc.
Safety boat training

We are trying another method for club communications. As well as this web site and the normal email method we are trialing a system called "mail chimp". This allows us to send emails to you in a more professional manner. Do check all your mail boxes and make sure you arrange for club communications to go in your normal mailbox not spam etc. If we don't have your up to date email address you will miss out on the latest news happening at the club so please do check. You can add your own email with the following link. MAIL CHIMP

I am aware several members have "bitten the bullet" and now bought your own boats, Well done! To help you master the technique of these boats and start moving up the fleet we are going to hold several 1/2 day single hander workshop.

Silver Wing welcomes Wraysbury Lake
It is a sad day to finally see Wraysbury lake Sailing Club, a neighboring club, close its gates for the last time after about 60 years. Sunday the 2nd December saw Wraysbury Lakes members without a club. Many have decided to come to Silver Wing and join our sailing activities bringing their boats, and we very much welcome them. We hope to see you on the water shortly joining in our active sailing programme.
