Baltic Wharf Sailing Club Facilities

Club Facilities at Baltic Wharf

Boat Storage

The club has a dedicated outside lock-up and space in a Dutch Barn in which members can lease a storage space for their boats. Spaces are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and are offered at a substantial discount to Bristol Docks' normal dinghy storage fees. If you'd like to sail regularly & keep a boat at BWSC, please contact our secretary for more information and to join the club.

The Clubhouse

The clubhouse is located in the same building as the changing rooms. 

The Cottage

All club events end up here, at the Cottage Inn on the waterside. A great way to get to know other members and find out more about sailing, different hobbies and various professions.

Sailing School

Although Baltic Wharf Sailing Club does not directly offer sailing lessons, we're right next door to All-Aboard! Watersports. Many of our members and their families have learned to sail here and are now very successful helms at the club.


We've a good mix of members, both male & female - of all ages. We meet regularly for sailing & non-sailing events, including; a successful monthly steak or veg night, visits to boat shows and camping at other sailing clubs. All great ways to get to know the other members at BWSC...
