Kevin O’Brien Commodore


Let me extend a warm welcome to Fishers Green Sailing Club.

We are a friendly club situated in the picturesque Lee Valley Regional Park with competitive Club Racing, casual sailing and a well-respected Model Boat section.  There are social events throughout the year and plenty of opportunities to sail or to help out.  You can reach our membership secretary on membership@fishersgreensc.org.uk for more information.
