Tamesis Club

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.

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 ‘Midnight’. 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.

Duty for Members

We have a thriving and ever growing SUP community, and with the club being accessible to members 7 days a week with secure storage for boards, it’s the perfect place for new and experienced Stand Up Paddleboarders.

We also have a series of SUP-specific events throughout the year, and you will of course be welcome to join in with the club’s extensive social and sporting calendar, often accompanied by BBQs and the club’s own bar.
