Social Sailing Information
With 130 acres of water available for sailing and an open aspect, Staunton Harold reservoir offers a great place to sail, with a well-equipped and comfortable club house, large boat park and a family friendly atmosphere. The club is open all year, so even the hardy sailors are fully catered for. In the peak sailing season, the water is open for cruising on four days a week, Friday evenings are reserved exclusively for social sailing and training. Even when racing is in progress, the water is large enough to accommodate both social sailing and racers without feeling congested. Safety cover is provided whenever the water is open. Alongside the social sailing calendar, the club offers a well-supported shored based social calendar, and the bar is usually open for a post sail drink.
If you don't own your own boat, the club has a fleet of boats available for members to hire, and can connect you with other sailing members who are looking for a crew or helm, either as a one off or a regular partnership. A great way to learn to sail and make new friends.
