The activities that are carried out here include racing in and around the Bristol Channel,  as well as cruises.  The Club has an established membership of many different skills and our membership is always happy to to offer advice and guidance to the novice sailors and pass on local knowledge to the more established.

We have an active social side and the club regularly hosts parties and the occasional evening talks for our membership which cover many differing topics.

We host courses during the winter period.  These include RYA Day Skipper, Yacht master courses and The short range DSC VHF certificate.  These courses are only carried out when we have sufficient interest.  Please ensure that if you are interested in attending one of the courses you have let our training section know. 

We are limited with the river usk to only be able to provide drying moorings,  There is a limited space for fin keelers in our Pill which is able to support these type boats due to the depth of the soft mud.  We do have a large area that can support bilge Keel vessels though.  If you are interested in bringing a boat to Uskmouth sailing club, we have two pontoons that are available for visitors.   These pontoons do dry out so please check when approaching that you are on the pontoon that best allows for you craft.
