Welcome to Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club

The club is in a beautiful position overlooking unspoilt hills and provides opportunities for sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking on a huge 3500 acre reservoir within easy reach of the main north east conurbations.

Our club offers superb facilities for all activities with a range of conditions to suit all from gentle sun-drenched days to the thrills and spills of heavy winds.

We have a large clubhouse with a bar, galley, changing rooms and indoor workshop.

Our 12 acres of grounds provide weekend camping opportunities, parking for a limited number of caravans, a 400 space boat park, 5 slipways and a jetty.

The club is well equipped with rescue boats and has a professionally operated safety team.

Junior sailing is a particular strength of the club and regular coaching is provided for ages from 8 upwards.

Dinghies, paddleboards and kayaks are available for new members to use to develop their skills or just to ‘have fun.’

Windsurfing equipment is also available by prior arrangement.

We welcome people from all walks of life and all abilities. With an active social scene, modern facilities for individual and family members, and the best inland sailing in the North East of England, the club really does provide a safe and secure environment on and off the water for all levels of ability and age groups.

Come and visit us and be amazed!
