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.

Following the announcement of the Government’s Roadmap out of lockdown, we are pleased to confirm that the club has reopened for water-sports activities as of Monday 29th March 2021. Covid restrictions still apply and we will be taking a cautious, phased approach to reopening.

This is currently limited to informal buddy sailing, windsurfing and paddle-boarding for exercise by 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 for everyone’s safety. To control infection, the galley & changing rooms are currently closed, with only the toilet open.

We will continually review government guidance with the view to opening our buildings and starting organised activities such as racing, junior activities and offering training courses as soon as we are able to do so.

The reservoir water level has now returned to normal after United Utilities completed the dam repair works late last year and we have plenty of space for everyone!

We look forward to seeing you on the water.

Best wishes

GSC Executive and Covid Committees
