Imperial Yacht Club is suited to the smaller dinghy classes due to its realtively shallow waters, not to say that in the past larger vessels such as Finns and Tempos sailed here in the past.
In recent years the adult sailors at IYC have settled on Laser, Xtra, Sonnet with the occasional GP14 and Enterprise. The Scout base next door regularly pile in young boys and girls into Saldana’s and sail comfortably.
Our junior sailors start off in Optimist and RSTera’s and progress onto the famous local class, Dabchick, and the international Laser 4.7 and Laser Radial.
Windsurfring and Kite Boarding are not yet official classes at IYC but are out on the water almost every day.
