We're a friendly sailing club based on the East Coast of England, near Ipswich (in Suffolk). Our location offers a superb variety of sailing in the sheltered rivers and estuaries of the Suffolk and Essex coastlines at the same time allowing ready access to the open sea beyond Felixstowe for the more adventurous.
• The club owns four dinghies and our new yacht Carina.
• Training sessions are held throughout the season.
• A great variety of sailing (from dinghy races to cross-channel cruises) is arranged each year to offer enjoyment and challenges for everyone.
• Training - our programme is aligned with RYA, many members obtain RYA practical qualifications on the club yacht.
• Hire—Once you are capable of handling a boat safely you will be able to sail in our beautiful local rivers. Our boats can be used privately or together with other members.
• Social - We have events through the year and do training over the winter such as First Aid, Navigation, Chart work and for fanatics “Astro Navigation”.
New members are always welcome. You don't have to work for BT to join, the club is open to everybody, although all members must to be over 18.
Membership - There are three types of membership. Yacht members (£122pa *) can skipper, train or crew on Carina as well as use the dinghies. Dinghy members (£47pa *) can helm, train or crew on our four dinghies. Owner members (£13pa) will have their own boats and join in with club events such as races and rallies. The club is fortunate in having a local boat hut and storage yard for owner’s boats. * Includes early payment discount.
What it costs - the club does not aim to make a profit and we want to keep costs down. Typically a day sailing on the yacht will cost around £10-15 or a training evening £15 and an afternoon in a dinghy around £5. A week on the Summer cruise will cost you around £250 to £450 all in.
We hold introductory sessions at Waldringfield and Levington. To arrange a friendly meeting with us use the contact form or email us.

*User-friendly, intuitive interaction

THIS IS NOT A GAME.
Application is used as an additional tool next to standard yacht equipment to take tactical decisions faster.
Sail Racer app suggest the favored end of the start line, monitors your position, time and guides the maneuvers that the start line was hit at the last moment with the best possible speed.
With the app it is easy to navigate in racing area. Interface is designed in a way that course efficiency, the lay lines and shifts could be captured in a splash of a second. Skipper does not need to analyze the numbers and can concentrate on handling the boat, maximizing performance and playing tactical games with competitors.
Every wind gust and lull affect the boat heading and is visualized in a “easy to read” shift bar on the top of compass rose. Course Deviation Indication – bar on the bottom of the compass rose displays long run course deviation between two marks.
Sail Racer is designed and developed by sailors. It has everything to sail on the edge.
- Course over ground
- Speed over ground
- Turn instruction
- Mark and Start line Range

The Fast Track has three main sections. The Dashboard, the Map View, and the Leg Comparison Tool.
Before sailing The Fast Track app, we strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the app in the simulation mode, where you will be provided with the necessary buttons to simulate your boat's speed and bearing.
You can easily define navigation waypoints, or import them from a GPX file.
The Fast Track app works as a time to line tool, synchronized with the regatta
chronometer, keeping you informed with estimated time to the start line. So you can make a perfect start!
When choosing a destination, The Fast track app will automatically
determine the theoretical wind of direction as upwind or downwind from your current position. Each time the boat passes through the direction of wind, The Fast Track app will assume the boat's tacking or gybing. And creates a new leg.
You can also specify the wind direction, so this angle will be used to decide when a tack or gybe has occurred. While the deviance keeps referred as the difference between the current boat bearing and the initial bearing to Waypoint.
The Text to Speech functionality can be activated from the preference menu, this enables The Fast track app speak specific navigation information updates, without the need to look at the screen.
Analyze your sailing through useful line charts as Speed, VMG & Deviance evolution.
Get full statistics from your sailing track as the Total Distance, Maximum & Average Speed, etc.
Save your navigation to GPX format and analyze it later in your PC, with your favorite GPS software as Google Earth, Garmin Basecamp, etc.
GPX file is saved in the folder /sdcard/TheFastTrack/AAAAMMDD_HHMM.gpx
AAAAMMDD is the date
HHMM is the time
- Offline Maps. Now you can cache (store) cartography before sailing and have it available in the middle of the sea without data connection. Based on Open Street Maps (osmdroid project) and the overlays from Open Sea Maps
- Waypoints Name & Location modification
- Proximity alerts to Waypoint
- Route Statistics (Length, Num. Waypoints, etc.)
- Enable/Disable Legs auto - generation
We recommend you to use a bluetooth external GPS antenna to enhance the accuracy of the application and get the better results.
