Glossop Sailing Club is a welcoming sailing club in a beautiful environment, run entirely by our members. We offer competitive dinghy racing for all ages and levels of experience, leisure sailing in an attractive Derbyshire setting, junior and adult windsurfing, and an enthusiastic stand-up paddle-boarding group.

Glossop Sailing Club’s place as one of the finalists in the 2019 RYA Club of the Year competition recognises our work over the years in creating a club that can be enjoyed by all, juniors and adults, novices and experts alike. This website is an overview of what we do, introduced by this short video.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: ACCESS TO THE CLUB DURING LOCKDOWN
We hope you are all safe and well.

Like you, the Exec members have been really missing being able to access our great club over the last few weeks and are itching to get back to full activities on the water as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so. Now that water-sports are recognised as an approved exercise regime, we are opening up the club facilities and activities in phases:

From Saturday 23rd May, informal buddy sailing and paddle-boarding for exercise is allowed. This is currently limited to experienced members with their own boats / boards. Under 18’s must be supervised by a parent or responsible adult and is at parents’ risk. A wind strength limit of Force 4 and below will be enforced. A safety boat is available (the small rib) but is only to be used in an emergency or by qualified families. To control infection, the galley & changing rooms are currently closed, with only the toilet open.

As lockdown restrictions change, we will allow access to the clubhouse and club boats, roster safety boats subject to social distancing arrangements, and offer racing, junior activities and training.

Anyone who does visit the club will notice the water level is down at 7.5 metres from top level – still suitable for launching from the slipway: the repairs to the dam are well underway and United Utilities aim to complete the dam repair works by August 2020.
