Beautiful location, great facilities

Overlooking Carsington Reservoir, the Clubhouse has a large balcony area with superb views over the water and the surrounding countryside.

Members and their visitors can sit, relax and watch all the activities taking place on the water.

In addition to all the on-water sailing, there are plenty of leisure opportunities both adjacent to the Club and in the surrounding area.

For families, as well as being able to cycle and walk around the reservoir, there is a very popular visitor centre, adjacent to Club with a large open grassy area, plus a large dedicated play area with lots of apparatus for youngsters to play on.

2019 January Water level report

Summary: Water levels are rising slowly at about 2% per week. At the beginning of January the level had risen to 75%; a similar level to last year.
