West Riding Sailing Club has been established on Wintersett Reservoir since 1937 and has witnessed the development in dinghy sailing from its early pre-war days, through the explosive expansion of the sport in the 1960's and 1970's, to the development of today's sophisticated sailing boats and equipment.

When it comes to inland dinghy sailing, we think we know what we're talking about!
