Kielder Yacht Club is based on the shores of Kielder Water in Northumberland surrounded by the quiet tranquility of Kielder Forest. The scale of Kielder Forest is enough to take your breath away! At 250 square miles it is England’s largest forest. But Kielder is not just about trees. Kielder is England’s most important red squirrel reserve, home to the biggest remaining population of red squirrels in the country. And of course the fantastic sailing.
The club is home to both motor cruisers and yachts where members can enjoy a full calendar of social and sailing events or simply get away get from it all on Europe's largest man made lake.
Kielder, with its 27 miles of shoreline, can provide at various times both tranquil cruising and challenging sailing. We are a friendly club with a wide ranging membership coming from as far afield as Yorkshire, Scotland and Cumbria, and currently have room to welcome a few new members to the pleasures of sailing on Kielder.
Kielder Yacht Club is not just about cruising the lake, we have an extensive sailing calendar with enough activities to keep the whole family involved. We include everything from a gentle sail to the a secluded inlet, rafting up with friends and a good bottle of wine to full blown regatta weekends and of course no sailing calendar would be complete without a good old BBQ.
So feel free to browse our site and learn more about Kielder Yacht Club and the Kielder Reservoir.
