About Tamesis Club

Founded in 1885, Tamesis is one of the most active and popular sailing clubs in south west London. Our clubhouse in Teddington is on the first non-tidal reach of the River Thames between Kingston Bridge and Teddington Lock. We provide racing for five different dinghy classes every Sunday morning throughout the year and handicap races on Thursday evenings in the summer. We also hold a number of Regattas and Special Races (see Events page).

There are lots of reasons to join Tamesis. We are a friendly, family club offering excellent facilities, sail training, and a lively social programme. Joining is easy with lots of membership options for sailors, non-sailors, individuals and families. Please visit us any Sunday morning if you would like to find out more, or click here to get in touch.

Try a sail in our Wayfarer

If you want to give sailing a go then get in touch and we'll arrange a sail with one of our experienced helms in our new Wayfarer dinghy. Along with the helm, the Wayfarer is large enough for 2 adults or a parent with two children, meaning family members can try out together.

Contact and FAQ

If you have any questions then please get in touch by going to our Contact Us page, or see our FAQ.

Remember that this Sunday (31 July) there is no Racing.  The bar will not be open nor food available.  If you can get to the Club through the cyclists you are welcome to have a casual sail and bring a picnic.  Eric will be running some tuition.  Normal racing will resume next week and a second set of races will take place in the afternoon to make up for the lost Sunday.

One of the cyclists will be Tamesis member and Merlin sailor Joe McLaughlin, who is raising money for charity.  Please go to:  (Please copy, and paste into your browser)
