Welcome


Situated in the picturesque Severn Valley, between the market towns of Bridgnorth and Bewdley, and within earshot of the Severn Valley Railways, our club sails on South Staffs Water, surrounded by stunning countryside.  And all this within 30 miles of the major conurbations in the West Midlands, Shropshire and Worcestershire, means we are ideally located.


We offer fantastic facilities for all levels of sailing skill: whether you are new to sailing, trying to enhance your existing skills, or an experienced sailor looking for competitive sailing races and events, we have what you need. We sail a range of classes regularly (Laser’s; RS Aero’s; GP14’s; Solo’s) with additional classes catered for in our Racing Style (see Club Racing page).
