National 12s at Henley S.C.

Henley Sailing Club
Willow Lane

Henley Sailing Club is 3 miles from Henley along the A321, in the village of Wargrave. The club is on the banks of the Thames, and the sailing area is between the Railway bridge upstream by Shiplake Lock, and downstream to Marsh Lock.

Apart from Twelves, the club sails Enterprises and OKs. The Twelves are the largest club fleet. There are 20 boats in the club of which 10 can be described as being reasonably active. Those sailing are aged 20-70, although there are a number of children likely to be starting to crew during 1998.

Three club boats regularly fly the club flag on the Thames Area circuit, and in 1997 we picked up 1st, 3rd and 4th places in this competition. Designs sailed are predominantly older - Tigresses, Cheshire Cats, Paper Darts - although Baggy Trousers, Final Chapters and Feeling Foolish can be seen!

Racing takes place on Sundays from April to December, and on Wednesday evenings in summer months. There is specific Twelve class racing as well as all in handicap races. These are held using both a Portsmouth Yardstick handicap basis as well as personal handicaps. There are races for novices, juniors and ladies also in the programme.

The club holds an Open Meeting once a year, and many of the club members migrate to Salcombe for a week during August.
