General Club data can be found under the menu "About Us" pages. The reservoir is owned run by Welsh Water, and the club is one of many users of the Watersports Centre. At the gate near the dam wall, tell the staff that you are taking part in the sailing event and they should let you through without the need to pay any day permit fee. The Watersports Centre is the further building past the launching bay and dinghy park. Please report in to the Sailing Club team, who might be upstairs in the main meeting room. You will need to register and find what any local rules are about parking or racing.
