The Varne Water Sports & Supporters Club offers an impressive location for Dinghy sailing with its own slipway leading to a gently shelving sandy beach.
With an east facing beach our launching area is protected from the prevailing SW winds. We have arguably the best site for safe launch and recovery on the Kent coast. Giving the novice sailor a better chance of success and more days on the water. With ample parking close to the beach rigging is less of a chore. Launching in shallow water over sand makes for the simplest launch with little chance of damage to boat and crew.
Sailing within the protected bay gives a vast amount of room for everybody to play and enjoy themselves and the chance of continuing to sail when the wind is stronger.
The Club offers changing facilities with hot showers, a galley, an active bar with a warm and friendly atmosphere, we can also offer dinghy storage in our boat compound for £40/ year.
Or much loved Mirror dinghy V01 has now been sold to a new club member and in January 2016 we purchased two second hand Toppers which are ideal training and racing dinghies. We still have our two new Topper Topaz dinghies kindly donated to the club from the very nice people at Magnox.
We have at present on loan from Folkestone Sea Sports part of the Shepway Sports Trust a Laser Statos (Keel version) for club use. It is a fantastic dinghy for taking your first steps afloat and will accomodate up to 5 persons, due to its draught we tend to ferry people out to the Stratos in the clubs rescue boat.
