At Greenwich Flying Squadron we welcome parents to embrace the harbour and join us in other activities in the club. However, there is no need or expectation if you only want your child to learn.
When your child joins the Learn to Sail program, one parent and the child are given free memberships of Greenwich Flying Squadron. We have structured program of events to introduce parents to the club and its activities. The more experience in sailing the better but we can cater to most experience levels.
Become a crew member on one of 70+ fleet of cruising yachts. We race every Wednesday evening. As part of the Learn to Sail program, we invite parents to tryout Twilight racing.
If you can already sail, join our Laser fleet, which sails at the same time as our afternoon children courses. This is also a progression path for teenagers wanting to further develop their skills.
On most Saturdays we head further afield to enjoy the splendor of our harbour. Challenge yourself with racing or just go cruising with friends.
Get to know other sailors socialising after the other events listed here.
Register your interest in joining an existing crew
They way to join a crew is to get to know existing members who own a yacht and are in need of extra crew, either permanently or occasionally. The club facilitates this process by organising periodic races where interested junior's parents are invited to join the crew of one of our yachts, either on Wednesday evenings or on Saturdays. It is then up to the parent to consolidate relationships and be invited to be a regular crew member. The best way to do that is to submit your details in form opposite (junior's parents only please), attend our social events after racing and make your availability known in our Facebook group with positive contributions.
