New Members Welcome

Members of the executive and club members welcome you and your family and friends to Hollyburn Sailing Club. We hope you will enjoy many wonderful moments on the ocean in the watercraft of your choice, and on land by the seaside.

Over the course of the year we run races, social events and workshops which all are welcome to participate in. The club is open for your use any day of the year, and many sailors, kayakers, stand-up paddleboarders and rowboat enthusiasts continue to get out on the water during the winter months.
