Wimbleball Sailing Club

Wimbleball Sailing Club is a friendly family club open to all, providing dinghy sailing, racing and RYA sail training. We are located at Wimbleball Lake, a large reservoir of 385 acres on the east side of Exmoor National Park, a short drive from Minehead, Tiverton, Taunton and Wellington.

Wimbleball is one of the most beautiful inland sailing locations in the country. It is a popular venue for visiting clubs and class association meetings - you are welcome to compete in our regular Sunday races, or we can organise racing on Saturdays and bank holidays as required.

We are a Royal Yachting Association certified training centre. We have a fleet of training boats for all ages and abilities. All of our instructors are active Club sailors, ensuring that you will receive training from knowledgeable and experienced sailors.

Not only do we host a number of open events and inland championships, we also hire our facilities to youth and activity groups for both on-water and off-water programmes.
