Welcome to Grassholme

We are located at Grassholme Reservoir near Middleton in Teesdale in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 49 hectares of water lined up with the prevailing wind allow plenty of space for learning, racing or cruising. The Waterside Park provides a circular walk of 4 miles, which link to the Pennine Way and other footpaths.

Club Sailing 11/07/21

We had some what variable winds today, at some points not even being able to lift the England Flag (it is coming home!!!) and at others being enough to give Richard's Laser 3000 a deck wash. Water levels are still low and it was a bit muddy launching and landing but good fun was had by all. More »
