If you and your family have general interest in outdoor activities, have sailed in the past and would like to try again or just fancy trying a new friendly sport, then just email us. The booking form for this years events is now closed. So please use the email link above and we'll try to fit you in.


We can welcome visitors on almost any weekend during the sailing season. But as a beginner it is sensible to restrict this to the spring and summer (Easter to September). It's warmer!

What to bring

The club will provide safety equipment (buoyancy aids). Why not make a day of it, bring a picnic and perhaps enjoy a walk around the reservoir. If you intend to sail please bring: -

We recommend that you should be confident in the water, even if you cannot swim a long distance. Merthyr Tydfil Sailing Club will provide buoyancy aids and wind-proof overalls if the weather's not wonderful; but remember we need some wind to make the boat go!
