Located in the heart of London’s Docklands at the west end of Millwall outer dock, the Centre is based in an award winning purpose built facility with great views from the upstairs bar over the dock, and wet facilities downstairs. We are a Royal Yachting Association recognised training centre, and deliver courses in Sailing, Windsurfing and Powerboating under the RYA scheme. We also offer British Canoe Union courses in paddlesports. Our function rooms are available for private and corporate hire throughout the week and land based events can also be tied in with our water based activities, such as dragon boating, sailing or kayaking/canoeing to create a great day out for you.

I have been there many times, sailed with my children, had my sons 10th Birthday party there and brought clients for the evening events. The membership is worth while and the youth programme is amazing.
