The Anglia Land Yacht club is located at Bassingbourn Barracks near Royston on the A1198. It is a
long-established club with excellent facilities, a club-house, a 2 km racing
circuit, and a parking and storage area. The facilities are rented from the
Ministry of Defence and we are grateful for their assistance and
co-operation at all times.
We run usually on a regular basis throughout the year taster and training
sessions approved by the British Federation of Sand and Land Yacht Clubs.
These are designed to give newcomers to the sport the option to try out
sailing on land and to teach them the skills and confidence to sail
competitively and safely on our airfield circuit. The club is open to
members and visitors on the majority of Sundays throughout the year with
regular sailing and racing taking place.
For beginners and new comers to the sport the club has a number of
yachts in different classes that can be hired at a daily rate.
The sport, and therefore the club exists for competitive sailing. This we do
at a range of levels both at the club and at other venues across the
country, and across the different classes of yacht.
