About the Club

In 1957 several people were keen to set up their own dinghy racing club. In fact, they were so keen that they rolled up their sleeves, dug out an access track to Harthill Reservoir and worked together to build their own clubhouse.

Today the clubhouse has been extensively refurbished providing facilities that those early members would not have dreamed of, but the spirit of the club has remained the same: competition on the water and co-operation off the water.

The club enjoys a family atmosphere which is as supportive to beginners as it is encouraging for those keen to develop their racing skills.

There is a strong youth section which is helped by the provision of a fleet of 4 club Toppers and regular training opportunities, under the careful supervision of RYA qualified instructors.

Facilities

Inside the clubhouse

The Clubhouse, which was extensively enlarged and modernised in 1999/2000, has a welcoming up to date galley and bar, central heating and double glazing plus comfortable changing rooms with hot showers.

If you already have a boat and would like to keep it at the club, we have a secure compound providing anchor points to secure all boats. Berths are available as an addition to the basic membership fee.

The Water

The whole of the water can be seen from the OD box providing a particularly safe environment, which is further enhanced by safety boat cover whenever the water is in use.
