Sailing and Social Group

Started with one wayfarer in 2006 Shoestring now has 4 dinghies at the high performance centre C.A.R. Los Alcazares. We cater for all levels of experience and our members come from all parts of Europe to enjoy gentle sailing or exhilarating racing on the vast expanse of the Mar Menor.

The Group now has two Gambas. (Uno and Cuatro), one ‘Laser 2000'.(Dos), and a Topper Omega Topaz.(Tres), – all stored in the CAR boatyard. The Group has a ‘sailing day’ every Friday at the CAR slipway and subject to decent weather, newcomers can meet other Members and may get a chance to join a sail and be part of a crew. Any interested newcomer just needs to be at the CAR Slipway around 11.00 and speak to one of our Members (look out for the yellow SAMM Lanyards and occasional purple “Shoestring” polo shirts and the purple sided dinghies).

If you are interested in Dinghy Sailing in Southern Spain, come to one of our Friday meetings at CAR and learn more. You will be made very welcome. Alternatively, if you want to join, contact our Membership Coordinator here:

We have our own website here:
