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 COVID UPDATE: ACCESS TO THE CLUB

We hope everyone has enjoyed getting back on the water.

Now that Covid restrictions seem to be easing, we are moving to the next phase of reopening the club. The changing rooms are available on the same basis as last summer. There will be three changing bays in the male changing rooms and two in the female changing rooms. There is a board at the entrance to the clubhouse indicating which changing bays are occupied. Please remember to spray and wipe the changing bays before and after use.

Training – It was noted that the RYA advice is that training can ‘return to normal’ from Monday 19th July 2021. It was acknowledged that some instructor may be uncomfortable teaching while infection levels are high and the is the possibility of self isolation being required through track and trace. Training Principle to be advised to pass this on to instructors.

No Indoor training at present

Instructors should make sure that contact points on equipment are sprayed with disinfectant after use.

Spray buoyancy aids and spray tops after use.

Contact Juice for details on cleaning wetsuits and quarantining after use

Showers and clubhouse works are completed and Club House will be opened  .

Members will be encouraged to wear masks when moving around in indoor spaces.

A one way system will be established with In through the main door and out through the lounge / training room door. Doors will be left open at all times.

Windows should be open to allow good ventilation.

Chairs and Tables in clubhouse should be rearranged to allow clear thoroughfares and to enable social distancing.

The club welcomes new members, but uncertainty in Covid rates and the roadmap for easing lockdown rules means that we do not yet have dates for running training courses. Please contact contact@sail-glossop.org.uk before applying for membership: if you are already experienced and have your own equipment, we will forward your details to the appropriate sport captain to welcome you. If you are a novice requiring training, we will keep you informed on when we are able to run courses again.

We look forward to seeing you on the water.

Best wishes
