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.
