Weymouth Sailing Club is located on the harbour side overlooking the harbour entrance. The dinghy park alongside the club leads straight onto a wide launching ramp and there is a short sail out of the harbour entrance to Weymouth Bay and the sailing area.
Please note, there is no car parking available at WSC. However, public car parks are available close by, and parking is available in some roads in the vicinity.
Sailing from Weymouth Sailing Club is quick and easy so no long sail to the start each day, unless there is no wind!! The boat parking and launching means there is no long trek to the water’s edge either. The racing will be held in Weymouth Bay.

Weymouth town & sailing club
Crossing from the town/beach to the harbour by car is via the town bridge, but if you are walking and want a shorter trip you can use the foot ferry which operates from the Pavilion end of the Esplanade across the water to the harbour wall directly in front of Weymouth SC.
The Clubhouse overlooks the harbour entrance and across to Weymouth Town and the first floor clubroom is a pleasant place to relax.
Spectators have plenty of choices to spend their time. They can walk to the Nothe and have a good view of the sailing area, as used for the Olympic viewing! Alternatively explore the harbour area and coffee shops, shop in the Town, relax on the beach or walk the coastal path, all on foot. For those wishing to there are plenty of places in the area to visit by car or possibly bus.
