Introduction:- For those who are visiting or holidaying in East Suffolk and have an interest in sailing Temporary Membership of Slaughden Sailing Club is available.
The club is a very friendly and informal sailing club situated on the rivers Alde/Ore at Aldeburgh, Suffolk. We have around three hundred members and a busy programme. We have a modern, recently extended, clubhouse with galley, changing rooms, showers and a lounge with a fine view west up river where you can sit in a comfy chair and watch the racing - or the fantastic sunset, depending on your preference! All these facilities are available to temporary members. Please see below for the rules that apply to temporary members.
There is normally space within the dinghy park for temporary members to place their dinghies during their stay but if you require such a place you should contact the dinghy park supervisor to confirm availability for your particular boat before applying.
Over the years Slaughden Sailing Club has won a reputation for being a friendly family club and always makes new members and visitors welcome.
