The reservoir is over one mile long by approximately half a mile wide, where cruising can be enjoyed under the safe visibility of the on-duty safety boat crews
Tuesday evenings through the Spring and Summer months provide a safe environment for casual sailing as well as the opportunity to practice skills in a non-raciing environment.
Whatever your ability, the Lake is ideal for windsurfing in most wind directions, with a spacious grassy area for rigging, and an easy launching area.
You don’t have to worry about tides and you can enjoy the luxury of hot showers, hot drinks and the chance to have a chat with other members.
We have racing all year round at the club, as the resevior is warm enough to sail in without too much discomfort even in the winter months. During the warmer months we have racing three days a week as well as various class and club regattas
You will find club racing competitive and friendly at the same time in both the General Handicap Fleet as well as the well established Solo Class Fleet
Racing will be for Fast and Slow Handicap fleets for mono hull dinghies with a recognised PY, Flying 15s and K1 and K6 keelboats.
Classes that muster 7 or more boats can be given their own start.
First race is at 12:00 on the 19th October, and there will be 5 races, weather permitting.
There will be a galley with hot food. Overnight camping is possible but please contact us in advance to request this.

From 1st October 2019, club Sailing Instruction 9.2 will change to:
9.2 A general recall will be signalled by the displaying of the First Substitute flag (two sound signals) as soon as possible after the class start. The First Substitute flag will be removed (one sound signal) one minute after the class start. The warning signal for a new start for the recalled class shall be made one minute after the First Substitute is removed. Subsequent classes will still start at their scheduled time. This changes RRS 29.2. An explanatory document with diagrams is available HERE for more details).
An email has been sent to members describing the change, the reason for it, and the implications to OODs and competitors. If you haven't received this email, you can find the content of it HERE.
