We offer the best one design racing on the east coast for Dragons, Squibs and 707s ; the newly refurbished fleet of Royal Corinthian ODs welcomes the classic sailor and our cruising fleet encourages the experienced and supports the novice. The Otters, founded in 1930, offer both enjoyment and expertise on the water. Come and join us.
