Beaver Sailing Club is located on Southfield Reservoir, alongside the Aire and Calder Canal, near the East Yorkshire town of Snaith, with road access from the A614, and from 2013 sailing season will boast a fantastic newly built clubhouse and facilities.
The sailing water consists of two reservoirs of approximately 80 and 40 acres, with launching via ramps and jetties. The larger of the reservoirs is used for racing, the season starting in March and finishing at the end of December. Racing takes place on Sundays, Wednesday nights in summer and Bank Holiday Mondays, and is open to all members. We also host a number of sailling events on Saturdays. For members not wishing to race, the smaller reservoir to open at all times for cruising. There are no deep sections to the lakes, making it ideal for children, beginners and more experienced sailors alike.
Facilities include a brand new clubhouse with large changing rooms and showers, dedicated training rooms, a galley for hot drinks and snacks, and an extensive lounge area for relaxing. There are ample car parking spaces and a large boat park.
Beaver SC is a RYA registered training school and provides courses to teach and improve sailing skills, using club boats and qualified instructors. The training school provides a number of dinghies to learn on and welcomes non-members too, on payment of a low weekly fee. Training takes places on most Saturday mornings between March and December and some weekend/mid-week courses subject to time-tabling/demand.
