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.
Autumn is looming, with cooler weather and short evenings, but there is still lots of sailing to be done. During the last few weeks, we have seen all sorts of weather – dull, drizzly, windless conditions to sunny but very lively days testing even the boldest crews. Some of our members have competed in national and international events and acquitted themselves – and our club – most competently. Congratulations to you all.
Some reminders of what’s coming….
