NEWPORT Uskmouth Sailing Club will be holding an open day this Saturday, June 29.

The aim of the event is to attract new members by giving a free experience to sail as crew on member’s boats and learn about sailing in the Bristol channel from current members.

The club is now in its 51st year with a whole host of members enjoying sailing along the river.

What originally began as a small sailing and social club for the Newport Uskmouth Powerstation workers in 1959 became known as the Newport Uskmouth Sailing Club in 1968. It's run solely by the members.


It's a hands-on club with members maintaining their own boats and moorings and is a great way to get into sailing.

On the open day, there will also be food, stalls and a raffle for attendees. If you're planning of turning up, please contact the club so they can cater for those attending. You can contact them by calling 01633 485966
