Welcome to London’s friendliest
sailing club

Welcome to our dinghy sailing club on the sunny South Bank in Putney!  

We sail all year round on the River Thames: racing, fun sailing and pub cruises on long lazy summer days.

We’re a relaxed, international and sociable crowd. We love welcoming new people, helping them learn the ropes and become fantastic sailors!

Oh, and our parties are legendary…

So what are you waiting for? Come and visit us. The kettle’s on!

What our Members Say

South Bank Sailing Club: it's cheaper than therapy- Jamie Maule-ffinch
I joined last year as I was looking for a competitive but friendly club, and SBSC delivers! The sailing is top class and the socials are well organised and loads of fun - a great bunch of people! I'm really looking forward to the next 'Trip to the Ship' in Wandsworth - last time I went all I could hear was... 'Did they just turn up by boat?! ' ... Yes, yes we did.- Maxwell Newton
It's not a club, it's a cult...- Armand
