If you are over 50, join our popular Upperdeckers club to try something new, meet new people, keep active and have fun on the water. We ask for a £3 minimum voluntary contribution towards our running costs if you can afford it. No prior experience is necessary.

The Upperdeckers club offers a program of beginner-friendly, safe and supervised water activities including:

  • sailing
  • kayaking
  • narrowboating
  • bellboating
  • powerboating

Our friendly staff are on hand to teach you and answer any questions.

If getting on the water isn’t for you, just come along to watch, have a cup of tea and meet some new people. Free tea, coffee and juice is provided.


Every Tuesday 11am - 1pm (term time). Feel free to just turn up and try it. Please arrive at 10.45am.

What to bring

A full change of clothes (appropriate for the weather) including soft-soled shoes and a towel. We will provide everything else including buoyancy aids.

Full shower and changing facilities are available. A full change of clothing including shoes is required for those heading on the water.
