Formed in 1937, West Riding Sailing Club is one of the largest and oldest sailing clubs in West Yorkshire with around 300 members and 120 boats. We are situated five miles South-East of Wakefield on Wintersett Reservoir with a sailing area covering approximately 100 acres. We are easy to find, being located next to the Heronry Country Park. The club has a wide catchment area spanning Leeds, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Sheffield and Doncaster.
A new clubhouse built in 2006 is the pride of the club and hosts many social activities throughout the year. The club caters for all sailors from the novice to the experienced racer. The club races every Sunday during the year and Wednesday nights during the summer months. The water is open any other time for recreational sailing.
It’s hard to believe that another year is drawing to the close, but there’s still some fun to be had at WRSC.
The next social event of the year is on Sunday 21st December.
At 13.30 we will be holding a children’s Christmas party with music and craft activities aimed at under 14’s.
Following on, around 15.00pm, it's the Fuddle, a great chance to catch up with your fellow sailors and friends before Christmas. The idea is to each bring some food to share and make a giant buffet for us all to share. The bar will of course be open.
See you there.
Planning Approval from Wakefield council has been granted and we are now waiting for final quotes for the groundwork. Expect to see work starting before Christmas. Thanks to Hamish Gledhill for all the work on the plans, the planning application and liaising with Wakefield Council and to his team of Guy and Neil, who are helping with the constructional side of things.Read more: WRSC Newsletter November / December 2014
