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, it 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.       

A small family club of about 80 memberships, a wide range of dinghies are sailed and supported by safety boat services.   The main season runs from April to October, although members can sail all year during during daylight hours.

We currently own 2 WANDERERS, a fleet of new FUSIONS and a number of TOPPERS together with access to various other craft to sail and to offer training.

During the season a safety boat is scheduled for most Wednesday evenings and Saturdays during May to September, Sundays between May and October.
