Pond Sailing

Pond Sundays are held at the farmer’s pond over at Boro’ Waters (Ratsborough Farm), between Burnham and Southminster – perfect for a gentle introduction. Children are coached from kayaks until they are confident enough to sail around a course on their own.

First bookings go to members, so it’s a good reason for non-members to sign up – sailing for the kids, the chance to jump on a boat on the river for their designated parent, and a rather nice bar and restaurant to boot… what’s not to love?! Please do book in for any event – and help us make the best arrangements for you in advance.

Any adult volunteers on the pond or the river are always gratefully enlisted – we really do have a fun time and it’s such a rewarding job to watch the children progress and their confidence fly. This year, we are looking forward to guest appearances on the pond from the Rock Stars of the RBOD and RS Elite fleets… who have kindly offered their precious time to help coach our youngest members. What they don’t know isn’t worth knowing, so these pond dates are unmissable. And we are always delighted to see our past and senior Cadets coming back to the pond to show the little ones how it’s done.
