Suspension of Sailing

The draining of water from our reservoir to allow for work by Yorkshire Water to its structure, has proceeded much quicker than anticipated during this year, the water level now being such that the committee have had no option other than to call a halt to this year’s sailing.

Members will have received an email from the membership secretary providing details as to how the committee has decided to act with regard to this decision.

It is worth noting here that, for those that want to continue sailing, we have arranged a group membership with Denholme Sailing Club.  Our Saturday youth sailing has already moved there and we have managed to run a couple of training courses as well.  Denholme have general sailing from 10.00 am on Sundays with racing in the afternoon.  If you wish to sail there they have a variety of boats they have made available for us to use, but there isn’t any berthing space to store our members’ boats.  You would have to transport your boat each time you go.

For those not wanting to sail and not wanting to leave their boats up at our club, we have arranged boat storage, which will be available very soon.  This is at Units 9/10 Beck Road, Huddersfield, HD1 5DG. It will be limited access and we will not be allowed to do any boat maintenance there.  Should you be interested in moving your boat there please let me know.

In order for members to keep in touch with each other, there will be a social evening from 8pm at the Crossroads Inn, Wainstalls every 2nd and 4th Wednesday in the month. 

We will provide updates on the website and through email covering any club news and progress of the works taking place at the reservoir. Thank you to everyone for their ongoing understanding and support during this period at the club.
