Staunton Harold Sailing Club is a friendly club situated in Derbyshire on an open water with attractive surroundings. We have a modern and comfortable clubhouse. Sailing is available all year round with a comprehensive training programme. We also have an active youth and junior fleet and a full social programme.
Currently the club has approximately 800 members, with ages from five to over 70 participating in very active racing and cruising sections. The racing is on Sundays, Saturdays and Wednesday evenings in the Spring, Summer and Autumn, and most Sundays during the Winter. Members can cruise any time so long as there is a safety boat on the water, with Thursday and Friday nights reserved exclusively for them. The club also holds open meetings annually for Fireballs, Lasers, RS200s, Scorpions, GP14s, Enterprises, Comets, Optimists, and Toppers.
The club has been a Volvo Youth Sailing RYA Champion Club for some time, and as such has a very active and enviable comprehensive training school with a good number of RYA trained instructors drawn from within the membership.Sailing courses include RYA Levels 1 and 2 (both adult and youth) for members and non-members, refresher days, learning to race days, and 'taster' days for non members keen to give sailing a try. Powerboat courses include RYA Levels 1 and 2 certification, and safety boat certification.
