Priory is a small, family friendly club. We host a variety of activities ranging from “Pirates” for youngsters from age 6 to have fun and learn to sail, to regular racing on Sunday mornings - with all sorts of things in between.
The club provides opportunities in which people of all ages can participate, and Priory Lake provides an ideal place to learn to sail and to enjoy the fun of sailing. One example of the friendly nature of the club and the opportunities for all was in September 2001 in which in club racing, in the first race of the morning the helms ranged in age from 7 to 74, but with the wind getting up for the second race, the youngest crewed for the oldest!
The Lake is situated in Priory Country Park near the centre of Bedford, and is a 68 acre former gravel pit now landscaped with shrubs and low trees. It is full of wildlife of all sorts.
