Carsington Water, set in the beautiful Peak District, blends with its natural setting to create sailing facilities of an excellent quality.

Members join us from many surrounding counties; attending the Club to sail for pleasure, race, enjoy social events and to take part in a wide range of training programs. We welcome new members and are always happy to show people around.

The Club welcomes a wide variety of boat classes including Dinghies, Keel boats, Catamarans, Day Boats and Cruisers.

We have a stone-built clubhouse, large, warm changing rooms with hot showers, as well as a fully stocked bar and extensive catering facilities. There is ample car and boat parking. In addition there are three slipways and boats can also be rigged and launched from the foreshore.

The Club opens Wednesday to Sunday inclusive, from February until December. The Club also opens over Bank Holidays for Sailing, Social Events and occasional Open Meetings.
