Swarkestone Sailing Club is situated a few miles south of Derby. We are a small and friendly club with about 140 members. Most of the organised activities take place on a Sunday, or on a Wednesday evening during the summer months, but members are free to sail at other times as convenient to them. Members sail dinghies and windsurfers, but not the more high performance asymmetrics or catamarans. The lake, which we share with an angling club, is about 80 acres, with our longest shore to shore distance being about just over a kilometre. Most of the water can be sailed on, although there are a few shallow patches. We sail through most of the year, with a variety of races and series organised. We welcome and have facilities and equipment for both disabled sailors and juniors. A particular feature of the club is the ease of access to the water from a stable pontoon.
