We are a sailing club, affiliated to the RYA, that welcomes families and individuals new to sailing or experienced. We provide training and coaching for adults and young people, to develop skills towards taking part in the club racing programme and beyond.
Dovestone Sailing Club has sole use of the almost 100 acre reservoir at Greenfield near Oldham. It is set amid dramatic scenery in the PEAK DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK off the A635 Greenfield to Holmfirth Road, via Banks Lane. It is approximately half a mile from the Clarence Hotel at the junction of Chew Valley Road and Manchester Road, Greenfield.

It’s easy to join – just fill out this online form.
You don’t need a boat straightaway. Borrow a club boat, or crew for another member. When you are ready to buy a boat it doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg, there are lots of second-hand bargains to be had.
If you’ve walked around the lake and often fancied yourself bobbing about in one of the boats then what are you waiting for – join today and you’ll be sailing by the weekend.
