South Shields Sailing Club is hosting a UK Laser Association Qualifier event on the 22/23 September which will be attended by approximately 100 Laser Standard and Radials.
There will be no club sailing organised, but members and visitors are welcome to come along and lend a hand onshore, or just observe.
Many thanks to the numerous members that have volunteered their time to run this event. If you have volunteered please be at the club for 9:00 am on Saturday and 8:00am on Sunday.
Competitor parking and boat compound is in the Council car park closest to the club (south). There is a height restriction of 2.4m at the entrance. Taller vehicle can use the next Council car park (less than 5mins walk). Sandhaven caravan park is less than 10mins away for those needing such a facility.
The club compound is reserved for club member parking.
South Shields Sailing Club is a friendly, family club for dinghy, catamaran, and windsurfers, situated at the mouth of the river Tyne. The club is run wholly by friendly volunteers of all ages, and backgrounds.
The majority of our sailing takes place in the mouth of the Tyne river between the north and south piers, however we do venture out onto the open seas at various times throughout the year.
Why not come along to the club and see for yourself what it is all about?
During the year we offer “Open Days” to allow potential members the opportunity to have a go. Look out for these on our website (Events), or come down to the club when people are around, 10:00am, 1:00pm on Sundays or 6:00pm on Wednesdays are when there are most people around (just before everyone goes sailing).

South Shields Sailing Club is pleased to offer the availability of the clubs Laser 1 and Laser 2000's for hire to club members.
The dinghies are provided primarily to encourage new members to get out on the water to improve their skills.
