Welcome to Thornton Steward Sailing Club

The Family Club

Based at Thornton Steward Reservoir, 5 miles west of Bedale, North Yorkshire, at the entrance to Wensleydale.   At 35 acres, the water is large enough to give good tactical racing, yet small enough to feel safe for the nervous or newcomer as all areas of the water are visible from the clubhouse.       

Our small family club, allows a wide range of dinghies to be sailed, together with SUP's, Canoes, Kayaks, Windsurfers, supported by safety boat services on selected sailing days.   The main season runs from April to October, although members can sail all year during daylight hours. As an RYA accredited club, we also offer Junior sail training and sailing courses throughout the year.


TSSC is also home to our Afilliate Club CGSC (Catterick Garrison Sailing Club) and provide training by qualified RYA Instructors.

We currently own 2 WANDERERS, a fleet of FUSIONS and a number of TOPPERS and LASERS, 3 Paddleboards, 2 x Sit on KAYAKS and access to various other craft available for members to hire at subsidised fees in which to sail and to provide training.

During the season a safety boat is manned by members of the club on a volunteer rota system, as a condition of membership.

If you're interested in racing, we have a thriving core of keen racers and run regular Race Sundays and a Wednesday "Sunset" series of events.
