Tata Steel Sailing Club



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
