Huddersfield Sailing Club is a friendly family-orientated club based at Boshaw Whams Reservoir 1.5 miles south of Holmfirth in West Yorkshire. Established in 1958 it has a large Clubhouse with a spacious observation lounge, kitchen and changing rooms. There is ample boat and car parking space and easy access to the water.

The club's main organised activity is fleet and handicap racing  which takes place on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from March to November and Wednesday evenings in summer. The relatively small water rewards excellent boat handling skills and encourages close tactical racing. It also provides an ideal venue for people of all ages and abilities, including families and children, to learn to sail.

The most popular classes of boat sailed are Laser, Heron, Mirror, Topper, Enterprise, Graduate and Optimist. The club also owns a number of boats suitable for beginners, which members may hire at very reasonable rates.

We welcome new members who wish to take up sailing for the first time and provide informal coaching to club members at all levels of proficiency. Anyone interested in sailing who wishes to find out more about the sport is assured a warm welcome at the club any weekend afternoon. Membership forms are available at the club and from the Membership page.
