Wembley Sailing Club
The Welsh Harp reservoir is one of London's best kept secrets. It is a tastefully preserved conservation area along a mile-long stretch of water. You can hoist your sails up and fly across the reservoir from Wembley Sailing Club, which has a fleet including Lasers, GP14s and a couple of Fireflies, all in shipshape condition. Dinghy sailing really is the best way to learn the ropes (literally) before moving on to chartering your own yacht! Adults can sign up for the RYA Level 1 course at Harp Sailing School and then take out the club's dinghies to brave the open water in. There is also a small armada of single sail Optimists. These robust boats are very difficult to capsize, making them ideal for children to learn to sail. The instructors turn children's sailing into an art form, interspersing Sunday afternoon sails with picnic cruises and games on the water. Anything to do with sailing can be pricey but this club is as affordable as it gets. If you are planning a day on the water, we do recommend you phone beforehand to avoid disappointment. do recommend you phone beforehand to avoid disappointment.
