Even in the depths of winter, the hardy Telford Sailing Club sailor can be found down at the lake in Priorslee.
Our main sailing day is Sunday, three times a month (see the calendar), although the extra keen sailors enjoy a sail on wednesdays and fridays.
If you just want to come down and see what it’s all about, we’re happy to take newcomers out for a sail, or just talk about sailing.
Visit the “Clothing page” on this website to order a Zipped fleeces, and Polo Shirts in sizes to fit all. All come with The sailing club logo and the RYA training centre logo embroidered on the front. There’s a choice of fleece type and price and the polo is a quality pre-shrunk cotton.
TELFORD SAILING CLUB 2017
OPEN DAY / RYA PUSH THE BOAT OUT DAY
Sunday 21st May 2017 11.00am – 4.00pm
Telford Sailing Club members are holding their annual Open Day / RYA Push the Boat Out Day on Sunday 21st May 2017 between
11.00am and 4.00pm at Priorslee Lake.
If you are interested in a brief introduction to sailing, come and try sailing in our Club boats with an experienced sailor. Juniors (aged 7-14) are welcome to try our Optimist or Topper Dinghies, providing they can swim and conditions are suitable. Buoyancy aids are provided but you should bring old trainers as feet could get wet.
2017 Membership fees will be reduced by £20 if you join and pay at Open Day.
Ask about our RYA Learn to Sail courses when you come
Priorslee Lake is situated off junction 4 on the M54. Go up Castle Farm Way, and turn into Priorslee Ave. We are at the end of Teece Drive,
It’s the clubs last race in the year, everyone is welcome. It’s a fairly laid back race so do not be put off if you are new to racing.
We have 2 club Miracles, so if you don’t have a boat at the moment come down on the day and we will partner helm and crew members where possible.
Race starts at 11am so you must be ready to sail by 1045
Race will last for about an hour.
Christmas cup trophy presentation in the club house, after which we will have a short break with refreshments.

If you feel that you could offer organisational or other skills, then fill out the application form and return to me.
We have a number of spare places on the committee that you may be able to fill.
I have attached a nomination form for anyone who may wish to join the committee and share some of the club duties.

Hoping that as many members as possible will come and join us where you can meet other members old and new.
Following our announcement back in April that we are now an official RYA Training Centre, we ran successful Level 1 and Level 2 training courses in May and June. Congratulations to all our new sailors! We are looking at running some more courses next year, but in the meantime are offering a sailing experience day on the 5th September which was more than 100% oversubscribed! Clearly there is growing appeal for this wonderful pastime!
