Welcome to the Burton Sailing Club website

We are a fun, family club that provides a vast range of activities from training for beginners to regular racing, windsurfing and offshore sailing.

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!

Regatta Weekend

Saturday  - a great day for all the family

We’ll light the Barbie at 12pm and keep the food stacked through till about 3

Summer garden games on the lawn including swing-ball and a penalty shoot-out!

Fun sailing (starting around 1pm) to include:

The Topper/Pico relay race

Capture the flag

And the now famous ‘battle of Trafalgar’ water fight!

(bring your water pistols and water balloons!)


We’ll settle down for an evening of entertainment with a live band from around 8pm, a fully stocked bar providing your every refreshment and a mouth watering hog-roast!


Free camping on site will cure those drink driving woes and with the prospect of a free breakfast for all that camp over, a night under canvas has never been so tempting!



Sunday  - a fun day of racing

The prestigious Commodore’s Cup!

A three race series including:

Ernie Hewkin Pursuit Race starting at 11am

followed by 2 General Handicap races with all three

races counting towards the day’s series (and the

summer series). The boat with the least amount of points over the three races wins the Commodore’s Cup for 2017!



Prizes also for 1st Junior and first Lady!
