Carsington Water is close to the southern edge of the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District, approx 12 miles NW of Derby, & 6 miles NE of Ashbourne.
Carsington Sailing Club
will be our host, (Not the Watersports & Bike Hire Centre adjacent to the Visitors Centre)
with 700 acres of open water set in the beautiful Peak District the venue boasts stunning views coupled with fantastic facilities in the stone-built clubhouse. Plenty of parking and a choice of 3 slipways add to the pleasure of sailing at Carsington.
We will be sailing from the Club on Saturday (Racing) & Sunday (Social Sailing), but overnight camping on site is not permitted due to club lease.

Web Site, for local information, including Accommodation options.
Note: Accommodation will be at a premium around this location & time of year, recommendation is that you book early.
There are several campsites to choose from. The Knockerdown Inn has showers,
toilets etc, but no electric hook up, but is attached to the pub where we hope to
have a meal together on Saturday, and is close to the sailing club. www.knockerdown-inn.co.uk. Uppertown Farm is also very close to the sailing club, has no
electric hook ups or toilets, and is just £5.50 per pitch per night. No booking
required. Also try the Pudding Room Inn http://www.thepuddingroomderbyshire.co.uk/
The Caravan Club has a site at the southern end of Carsington Water,
open to members and non-members.
