• Who we are

    Sully Sailing Club is a small friendly club dedicated to dinghy and cat sailors, located in Sully Bay, near Cardiff, South Wales. We have a small modern Clubhouse with disabled access, hot showers, and a club lounge but, alas, no bar. We also have what we claim to be the longest slipway in the Bristol Channel, which allows us to sail at virtually any state of the tide. We welcome windsurfers and canoeists, but the only power-boats allowed in the club are our own patrol boats.

    Probably the home of the longest slipway in the Bristol Channel.

    We race every Sunday through the season, with handicap races for both the 'fast' and 'slow' fleets. In this way we are able to offer competitive racing to all regardless of the class of boat you sail. For the more adventurous, who venture further out beyond Sully Island, there is some of the best wave sailing in the UK. The club is seeking to become an RYA Recognised Teaching Establishment and we run Training Courses for Youth and Adult members over a twelve week period on Wednesday evenings from May to July. Anyone interested in joining and taking part should contact the Club Training Officer.

    Racing and cruising for all, regardless of experience...

    The club offers sailing covering a wide variety of performance and skill levels. If you don't own a boat but are keen to sail we can help: we have a range of club boats (Lasers, Toppers and Topazs) which can be used by members for a small annual fee and there are also opportunities to crew for members in their boats. If you are uncertain about whether sailing is your thing, the club holds an Open Day in May as an opportunity for anyone to try sailing with experienced club members. Details will be posted on this website from late April.

    How to find us: Map

    The Club is situated between Penarth and Barry at about the mid-point of Sully Bay and is accessed from Smithies Avenue. Taking the main road, B 4267 South Road, through Sully, turn down Weston Avenue and at the end of this short road you will find that it joins Smithies Avenue at a 'T' junction. Look diagonally to your right and across the road you will see a narrow lane signposted 'Jubilee Hall' (If you are towing a boat itis easier to approach along Smithies Avenue from Burnham Avenue and the lane is on the right just before the junction with Weston Avenue). Proceed down this lane and you will come to a small car park next to the Hall and fronting the playing fields. Sully Sailing Club will be clearly visible directly in front of you ...

    Please proceed with the utmost caution!

    as this lane also leads to a children's play area as well as forming part of a popular local footpath.
