What we can offer you

Clywedog Sailing Club runs a wide range of facilities for sailors and paddlers of all abilities.

  • It doesn’t matter how old, or young, you are
  • It doesn’t matter if you have never been in a boat
  • It doesn’t matter if you are able-bodied or need some help to get around

We can help you to enjoy sailing in a way that suits you.


Club craft, wetsuits and buoyancy aids are available for members to use either:

  • as part of club led activity
  • or following skills assessment by a club instructor for the type of craft. (You will need to arrange assessment at the lake with a club instructor during club led activity).

Use of club sailing dinghies is only permitted when safety cover is active on the lake, provided by a club helm who holds at least RYA PB2 certificate.

Don’t take paddle craft out on to the water when safety cover is not operating unless you are completely confident in your ability to self rescue and return to the shore.

A proper fitting buoyancy aid is mandatory for all activity on the water.

Follow the sailing/paddling policy on page 10 of the handbook sent with your membership.

There is no charge for the occasional use of club equipment as a means of familiarisation with craft and helping decide what suits before buying your own.


The Club currently has a number of dinghies available for hire by members (see notice board for day rates) for training and racing.  Dinghies  for hire  are for  members only unless  participating in training.
