Sailing / Yacht Club
Teesdale Sailing Club is located at Grassholme Reservoir in the heart of Teesdale, ‘England’s best kept secret’. The club enjoys 140 acres of excellent sailing water amidst beautiful countryside that has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. On shore club facilities comprise a clubhouse with changing rooms, kitchen area and clubroom, boat park and spacious grounds with fine views across the reservoir. Nearby are the Northumbrian Water visitor centre, and ample parking. Footpaths encircle the reservoir providing access for fishing, bird watching and walking. On the water the club provides full rescue boat facilities on Sundays, and on Wednesday evenings in May, June, July and August. There are also four club boats (two Toppers, a Miracle and a GP 14) available for use by members. Racing is organised in series and takes place on Sundays throughout the season, with two handicap races on each day. In addition there are special events such as the Grassholme Cup, and pursuit racing to add variety.
