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. 

We are a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) approved training provider and offer a number of courses throughout the year. Click for more details.
