Glossop Sailing Club

sailing club


Saw the Olympic Team GB sailors winning all those medals and fancy a go at windsurfing or dinghy sailing for yourself? It’s much more accessible than you might think! Glossop Sailing Club is a friendly and welcoming watersports club situated on Torside Reservoir opposite the Longdendale Trail visitors’ centre, and enjoys some of the North West’s best sailing waters in a beautiful Peaks environment.


As an RYA Training Centre, we offer sailing, windsurfing and powerboat courses for both adults and juniors in a safe and patrolled sailing area. For novices and improvers, our courses will get you sailing with confidence on our Saturday family sessions, or introduce you to competitive racing on Sundays. Experienced helms will find plenty of challenges in our yearly calendar of racing events.


Glossop Sailing Club runs a lively Juniors’ Club for 8 to 16 year olds on Friday nights from April to August, and Saturday afternoon races through September to October, with an all-day Summer School in August. Sailing is all about strategy and skill, and appeals equally to boys and girls. Club boats and boards, wetsuits and buoyancy aids are all provided, and a lively social group of friends gathers in the clubhouse after each session. Grown-ups are also encouraged to help and gain their own skills too!


The RYA recognised our work over the years in creating a club that can be enjoyed by all, juniors and adults, novices and experts alike, by nominating Glossop Sailing Club as one of the five finalists in the 2011 RYA Club of the Year competition.
