We are a community sailing and watersports club in Teesdale. Our membership fees are amongst the lowest in the country and you do not need to become a member or own your own equipment to get involved.

We provide facilities for dinghy sailing at Grassholme Reservoir near Mickleton and Middleton in Teesdale.

We have a club house with changing rooms. There is provision for parking members' dinghies and club dinghies available for hire.

We help new sailors and provide formal RYA recognised dinghy training at intervals through the year. On Sundays we have dinghy handicap racing although informal sailing is also possible. Safety boat cover operates on Sundays and there is informal sailing on summer Wednesday evenings. Attend one of our open days to see if sailing suits you.

RYA affiliated. RYA Recognised Training Centre.
