RYA Push the Boat Out


Scaling Dam is situated on the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors approximately half way between Guisborough and Whitby on the A171 road.


Scaling Dam S.C. is a thriving sailing club which welcomes people of all ages wanting to learn to sail in safety. Every spring we have a fun Open Day where all the family can enjoy a sail with one of our experienced crew. We also offer “taster” sessions, again with an experienced helm, at other times during the season for anyone wanting to try sailing.

The venue is a also great place for windsurfing with good winds and ample grassed areas for rigging etc. We have a growing number of sailing members who are joining our windsurfers to enjoy this great sport.

If you want to participate in any club events or just want to enjoy sailing/windsurfing in this great location then please come and visit us. Click on these links to check out Membership or to view our Events diary.

We are an RYA recognised training centre and our courses are managed by our enthusiastic team of qualified instructors. We offer formal training for dinghy sailing from Level 1 up to RYA Seamanship/Sailing with Spinnakers/Performance Sailing.  Click this link for an overview of training.

For many years we have welcomed the opportunity to share the joys and rewards of sailing with children and adults with disabilities. Click for more information on Sailability.  Sailability prides itself in its ´inclusive´ policy with disabled sailors able to sail alongside able-bodied sailors on equal terms. Scaling Dam welcomes a growing membership of disabled sailors.
