Welcome to West Oxfordshire Sailing Club

IMPORTANT  - WOSC Committee update

We are in unprecedented times and therefore have to take unprecedented measures. Since the announcement Monday 23rd March the new measures to control corona virus mean, significant changes will now be made to the running and access to WOSC from the date and time of this email.

  •  All club organised activities (Racing, Training and Social) are CANCELED .
  •  The club house including all the toilet and changing facilities are CLOSED and LOCKED to members.
  •  The outside space IS available for member access inline with government guidance for daily exercise– such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with. This will be monitored by remote CCTV for compliance. The Committee will maintain the option to close the site completely if gatherings exceed this.

The above measures will be in place until there is further change in advice or direction from the Government.

I look forward to the time we can resume business as usual, and hope the weather is as bright and sunny as it is today.

Up Coming Social Events: 

Because of the current Covid 19 situation all WOSC Social events have been postponed or cancelled until further notice.   With government guidance constantly in a state of flux we will not offer any more social gatherings until such a time as the govenrment deem it safe to do so.

We would like to thank members for their understanding and support, 
and request they check the social pages for further details.

New for 2020

Want to give sailing a go, but not sure about committing to a sailing club??

This year we are offering non-members the amazing opportunity to try out WOSC with a temporary membership while obtaining your RYA Level 1 and 2!

The aim of this course is to teach a beginner to sail over two consecutive weekends achieving Level 1 and Level 2 RYA qualifications. Times will be 9.30am to 5pm each day. There is a maximum of 9 students per course. For more details follow this link: Sailing School Courses

This course is recommended for those over 16 years of age. Booking is on a first come first served basis by contacting the training secretary:


The cost of the course is £250 in total (includes two weekends, Level 1 and Level 2).

You will also get temporary membership of the club until the following March, so that you can have access to club boats and facilities to further practice your sailing and even race! Once your temporary membership expires, you can apply for full club membership if places are available.

Important note: You will be expected to comply with the conditions of membership which includes club duties a couple of times a year (see Membership pages for more details).

Where we are...

Located near Stanton Harcourt, WOSC is a friendly family sailing club with the facilities and atmosphere to encourage everyone to enjoy sailing. Please explore our web site to learn more about us.

The club owns two lakes surrounded by grass and trees that provides ample space for sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, walking, picnicking and enjoying outdoor activities. The prime purpose of the club is to encourage its members to learn to sail and to then help them to improve their sailing skills through leisure sailing or racing.

West Oxfordshire Sailing Club is proud of its friendly atmosphere that provides facilities that can be enjoyed by the whole family including the non sailor.

We run a wide range of activities that include: training, racing, and a programme of social events.  We also run a number of "come and try sailing" days in which you can try your hand at sailing with an experienced sailor.

The club has excellent facilities with a large clubhouse with bar and galley and a large area of decking giving good views over the water. There is ample space for car parking and designated berths for 300 dinghies. Concrete slipways are provided for launching and recovery of craft. 

The club is run entirely by volunteer members. Every member is however required to carry out duties to help with running the racing (see Club Rules) from OOD to race assistant or Galley.
