    RYA stage 1 course 24/25th July 2021

    The water level at Grassholme is still falling but this is isn't stopping us sailing yet. We ran a very successful RYA Level 1 course this weekend in a variety of different club boats. Good fun was had by all despite the rather trying launching and recovery routes needed. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out with the course and we hope to see the new sailors up at the club soon for another

    Club sailing 18/07/21

    The Sunday saw the first round the lake race of the year. Despite the low water levels and the need for some surreptitious moving marks racing began. The wind was fair and weather Mediterranean with glorious sunshine all day. 3 races went of without a hitch except for some spinnaker related capsizes from the battling laser 3000s. It was great to see 2 of our new sailors, who have only just started sailing this year,

Thanks to all the volunteer instructors at the club for making

    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.

    Local Children sail to success

    After a break of two years due to low water levels and Covid-19 restrictions the North East and Yorkshire Youth Travellers Series returned to Teesdale at the weekend. As the name suggests sailors from all over the region and Yorkshire travelled to Grassholme reservoir for the fifth event in the series of races. Some came from as far afield as Filey and Huddersfield and Sunderland, and waiting for them was an eager bunch of home

    Club Sailing 20/06/21 Club regatta

    A big thank you to everyone who came along and raced on Sunday in the Club Regatta, and to Deborah and Paul, who volunteered as OOD and SBO respectively, so that as many sailors could get out on the water as possible. Over the four races we saw some excellent racing and some of the most competitive starts at the club in recent years. The racing took place in a shifty light breeze that demanded

    The weekend saw five adults starting sailing and working towards their RYA level 1 and one sailor who took his level 1 at the start of the season doing a Level 2 course. Saturday sailing was challenging for all as the wind was far from kind and the majority had to learn their capsize drills very quickly. However they remained in good spirits and with support of our instructors made excellent progress. Sunday

    Today was our inaugural pursuit race of the season however the wind had other ideas, the occasional gust came through the lake but the competitors spent a lot of the race enjoying the sunshine rather than doing any pursuing. The finish despite the lack of wind was very close with Richard's Miracle pipping Dave's Enterprise to the post by a matter of seconds. Good fun was had by all and we will all go
