Holm Sailing Club is based in the village of St. Mary's. Points racing is held during the summer in Snipe dinghies.
Not a great deal of sailing going on in Orkney currently. A good time to repair and patch up boats while the winds rage over the winter.
The club boats have now been packed away for the winter, the 2016 season will begin around April. The 2016 regatta date has been set for the 20th August, note the date! The Holm Sailing Club website has a new archive page covering older races prior to 2000.
