Welcome to Harlow (Blackwater) Sailing Club.

We are an active, family friendly club situated  on the south coast of the Blackwater at Maylandsea, Essex, in a sheltered creek opposite Osea Island.  We offer sailing for dinghies, cruisers, kayaks and windsurfers, for all levels from novices to experts.

We welcome new members to the club, please trawl this site to find out more.

Club Open from 2nd December

December 1, 2020
The Club grounds and jetty will be open again from Wednesday 2nd December. Essex will be in Tier 2 so the rule of six applies outdoors and only one person at a time can enter the toilets or changing rooms.

Covid19 Lockdown - Club Closed

November 6, 2020
We have taken advice from the RYA regarding the latest Covid19 lockdown and regretfully the Club and grounds (including the jetty) will be closed until at least Wednesday 2nd December when we will review the situation. The only exception is for critical boat maintenance that cannot wait until after the lockdown ends; this does not include 'winterisation' of boats.
The remainder of the MBSC winter series dinghy racing has been cancelled.
