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.
