History

The first meeting of K.W.S.C. was held to elect a committee on 22nd March 1981. This led to the formal establishment of the Club on 5th April 1981 and before the end of the month dinghies were in action on Kielder Water. The original clubhouse was based at Leaplish with a large log cabin clubhouse built in 1987. The 1990’s saw the start of a new era for the club as Northumbrian water began developing the Leaplish site. In 1994 the Sailing Club commenced operating from the present site at Tower Knowe. The new location has proved very popular with members, it affords spectacular views over the lake while also providing a sheltered bay for the club’s inexperienced sailors to use. It is also generally agreed that the wind is better at Tower Knowe than it is at Leaplish.
