Run by an adult RYA qualified Senior Dinghy Instructor, the water activities are usually from April through October on a Wednesday evening if tide suits on the harbour or the Millpond, and we do anything from sailing to paddleboarding to windsurfing to kayaking the creeks to mucking about in a rowing boat with your mates, with lots of other fun things, too many to mention, with your friends and soon-to-be friends.

Training at ESSC is provided to build the sailing skills of the membership, as individuals and as a club, through the provision of safe and enjoyable instruction to recognised national standards.
The bar of the Slipper Sailing Club is renowned for its warmth and friendliness. It is the hub of club activity off the water... and most members seem indeed to be off the water.
In addition to a good selection of drinks, food is available on Friday lunchtime, Friday Evening, Saturday and Sunday between 12 noon and 2 pm.
Steward: Paul Tomlinson

Sessions are tide dependent – please see the 2019 SOTTs programme for timings.
Sessions run from 6pm on Friday nights (finish times are weather dependent).
