Welcome to Llandegfedd Sailing Club
Whatever standard of sailor you are, Novice, Junior, Intermediate or National Champion, why not come and visit us? We have been told that we are..."...one of the best kept secrets in Wales!"
Llandegfedd Reservoir is conveniently located between Usk and Pontypool and is around 8 miles north of Newport. It has deep fresh water. It is less than half an hour's drive from Cardiff or the Severn Bridge, yet it is in an idyllic country setting which makes it one of the most beautiful inland sailing locations in the UK.
For those who don't own their own boat, but can sail, there is a fleet of adult and junior club boats available for use when they are not required for coaching and training. We have Laser 2000s, Lasers with a choice of rigs, Fevas and a dozen Toppers
Please use the buttons above to find where we are, what we do and come and join us.

We have started to run the Winter Races. These are on January 19th, February 2nd and February 16th. Starts will be at 11:30, with a briefing before-hand if needed. The format is for three handicap races back-to-back. Please note that we are only allowed on the water after 11:30 and must be off the water by 15:00, and we can only sail at the south end of the Reservoir. Courses will be set within the boundary of buoys #4, D and #9.
