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.
We are pleased to announce that Silver Wing will be taking part in this world breaking event on the 21st September.You can now play your part by entering the event. Click title for more information and link below for what you need to doSilverwing Entry link

A Great Regatta for 2014.
30 boats on the line for the first race. With Raft building, great racing and a Bar B Que on the Saturday followed by more racing for everyone and afternoon tea and prize giving on the Sunday. A great weekend was had by all. Many thanks to all that helped make it a fabulous event.
