We are a very friendly dinghy sailing club with one of the most beautiful settings in the whole of the UK, based on the large Pontsticill Reservoir in the Brecon Beacons National Park. With this location even non-sailing members of your family can enjoy a lovely day out, with a gentle stroll around the reservoir, or up into the hills, simply enjoying the views.

We are a diverse club, sailing everything from boards to 20ft cats and have members of all ages and with a wide range of abilities. All are welcome.

The emphasis within this club is on fun. We do race but the atmosphere is always friendly and welcoming to newcomers. Many training days are organised throughout each year to assist improvers and beginners.

Series handicap racing is organised for the Sundays throughout the sailing season, this running from mid-March to Boxing Day. There are spring, summer, autumn and winter series with a cup for each and many more cup races throughout the year, with several on Saturdays and bank-holidays. During most of the season there is sailing on Saturdays, this is a more informal affair with people just cruising, teaching others or organising small races.
