Welcome to Sandwell Valley Sailing Club

See you out on the water!        SVSC.

Upcoming Events / News


SVSC is a very small, very friendly  club based at Swan Pool in the lovely surroundings of Sandwell Valley Country Park.  We offer a regular sailing program for all ages and abilities, including   friendly club racing,   training   and general sailing with safety boat support.  

Welcome to Sandwell Valley Sailing Club.

For those new to the sport, why not contact us about a taster session? We can get you afloat for your first sail with an experienced sailor or instructor. Click here for more details.

Having  a recognised RYA Training Centre here, we are able to provide a full range of Dinghy, Windsurf and Powerboat courses and qualifications, with tuition and guidance from our qualified RYA Instructors.    Click here for more details.

If you are tempted to take up this exhilarating sport accessible to anyone, or are already a sailor looking for a new club, then click here to learn more about our extremely competative membership options and review our current Membership Packages.

We meet on Thursday afternoons (& evenings in summer) and Saturday afternoons, but sometimes sail at other times if people are interested.

If you are in the area and fancy dropping by, we would be more than happy to show you around or discuss ways in which we may be able to get you afloat.

Club Coaching

Richard is again offering to run coaching sessions.  The same format as last year - early start Saturday, with instruction, then practice out on the water.

What he needs to know is, what topics people would like covered. Please let him/ me/ someone know what you'd like.

Suggestions so far:

 -  basic racing skills (please say what topics are of particular interest)

 -  rules

 -  OD duties & managing races  

 -  Laser sailing & racing


We hope to restart our youngsters' sessions again in May.

Anyone interested should contact Sue or Don.

AGM took place on Monday 12th March.


Change of Commodore and some new members on the committee.

Small increases in some fees.

Presentation to retiring Commodore, Sue.

Thursday Sailing

 We are sailing again on Thursday afternoons.  At the moment, very few of us. If you'd like to be put on the mailing list, please email Don.  

There used to be evening sailing on Thursdays:   please let me know if you'd like this to restart.

Forecast a dry cloudy day with a comfortable 9mph NW wind.  Should be very good for the racing.
