Welcome to our 2024 website.

Situated in Northamptonshire, the club which was founded in 1966, is run by volunteers and is non-profit making. It is a fully affiliated and registered training centre with the RYA (The Royal Yachting Association).
We welcome new members, both those wishing to learn for the first time or more experienced sailors keen to join in our racing programme. Family membership for paddle-boarding has been a popular choice this year.

What we have:

  • Competitive racing programme.
  • Training in all aspects of dinghy sailing
  • Stand-up-paddleboarding.
  • Sole use of the water in a superb setting.
  • Modern, clean facilities.

Hollowell Duties

All aspects of running the club, are undertaken by members who volunteer their time. It is, therefore, a necessary condition of membership that you contribute to the running of the club by performing a compulsory duty obligation.

Hollowell Try Sailing

Throughout the summer months we will set aside some Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings for your family or group of friends and to go out in company, with an experienced Sailing Instructor. Book a session.

Hollowell Reservoir is set in an attractive valley in the north of Northamptonshire just off the A5199. When approaching from the north you will need to go through the village of Guilsborough. From Northampton, turn-off at Creaton and after going through Hollowell village, turn right at the top off the hill.
