We enjoy excellent sailing facilities at Foremark Reservoir amidst the dramatic Derbyshire countryside, in the heart of the National Forest within easy reach of Derby, Nottingham, Burton, Leicester and Loughborough.

More information about the activities we offer, and membership, is given via the tabs above, and the latest news from the club is given below. We hope you enjoy reading about our club, and come and visit us at Foremark soon!

BURTON SC Flying FifteenĀ Open Postponed

Written by
Hi everyone, could you please share amongst yourselves that in line with the RYA cancellation  of all events and the current government advice the Sailing Committee has decided to postpone  our BURTON SAILING CLUB  FLYING FIFTEEN  open. Our intention is to replan the event to occur in October instead.  It may result in a crowded calendar at the end of the year I am afraid so we will publish new dates as soon as we agree them.
