    Thank you to all who volunteered to organise and run Buoyancy Day, and all the members who came down. The clubhouse was packed. Prizes were awarded, food was eaten, boats were tested, and a great race was run in challenging conditions. Well done to the 2 crews who stayed dry and everyone else - good capsize drill practice!

    Otley Sailing Club has been chosen as the RYA North East Region finalist for the RYA Yacht and Yachting Club of the Year. We have also been awarded the ‘Inclusivity and Open to all’ Award for all of our work introducing sailing to the disabled community. Congratulations to everyone involved, this is an amazing achievement.

    There are eleven finalists for Club of the Year, and the winning Club is voted for by the public. We need your vote and as many others as possible, please forward onto family, friends, neighbours, works colleagues – literally everyone you know, as every vote counts. Let’s make Otley RYA Club of the Year and bring that prize home to Yorkshire!


    Voting is now open and closes on 28th January, the winner is announced on 2nd March 2019.

    Not only would this be great for the Club but there is also a prize. The winning club will be able to select the prize package. Clubs with a youth section will be able to choose from either 6 RS Tera’s or 4 RS Feva’s along with a coach for one week during the club’s Summer youth activities. While for Sailability clubs, RS will provide an RS Venture for a weekend and a coaching talk from Paralympic Gold medallist Helena Lucas.

    Let’s get voting!

    ITV will be filming at the club tomorrow, Tuesday 2nd October. Our very own Dan "The Man" Murdoch will be being interviewed, there is a rumour he is even washing his buoyancy aid.

    We wish you good luck Dan -  you're a great ambassador for the club.

    The Autumn Season is now well underway, with sailing Monday to Thursday every week.

    If you have some spare time and would like to help out, volunteers are very welcome. No experience necessary as full training is given.

    The sad news has reached us that David Grimshaw has passed away. David was a past Commodore of our club and one of the members behind the formation of Sailability.

    Our condolences go out to David’s family and friends.
