Teesdale Sailing and Watersports Club

We provide facilities for Dinghy sailing at Grassholme Reservoir near Mickleton and Middleton in Teesdale.

We have a club house with changing rooms. There is provision for parking members' dinghies and club dinghies available for hire.

We help new sailors and provide formal RYA recognised dinghy training at intervals through the year. On Sundays we have dinghy handicap racing although informal sailing is also possible. Safety boat cover operates on Sundays and there is informal sailing on summer Wednesday evenings. Attend one of our open days to see if sailing suits you.
