The reservoir is over one mile long by approximately half a mile wide, where cruising can be enjoyed under the safe visibility of the on-duty safety boat crews
Tuesday evenings through the Spring and Summer months provide a safe environment for casual sailing as well as the opportunity to practice skills in a non-raciing environment.
Whatever your ability, the Lake is ideal for windsurfing in most wind directions, with a spacious grassy area for rigging, and an easy launching area.
You don’t have to worry about tides and you can enjoy the luxury of hot showers, hot drinks and the chance to have a chat with other members.
We have racing all year round at the club, as the resevior is warm enough to sail in without too much discomfort even in the winter months. During the warmer months we have racing three days a week as well as various class and club regattas
You will find club racing competitive and friendly at the same time in both the General Handicap Fleet as well as the well established Solo Class Fleet
Tata boats at Pembroke
The travelling fleet were feeling the strain of the pace of the series at Pembroke with only two boats making the trip. It was great to see fellow travellers Paul and John and Ken and Chris in their Ospreys, with Ken making the 5 hour trip from Kent to enjoy the fabulous weather in Milford Haven
Saturday, 1st July, and a clever delay on the start, undoubtedly influenced by the Lions victory in New Zealand, allowed the breeze to pick up to a comfortable F3 North Westerly, bring a slight chop and healthy blow to help the Ospreys and hinder the fireball.
True to form, Gordon and Ruth took the first race on a tight trapezoid course with a full beat up against a turning neap tide. The second race saw Gordon getting frustrated on the start line and forced to retire with equipment failure. The wind built slightly for the third race and the tide turning to push the Osprey to the front end of the fleet. The course was changed to a triangle sausage to allow for variation and to challenge the different boat attributes and spread the opportunities
Day 2 saw a lighter wind for the 12 mile 7 Forts race and a running start helped the Osprey to get out near the front of the fleet early and allow them some clean air. The Fireball was playing catch-up on the 5 mile beat against the tide, always a difficult ask.
There was some stunning scenery to be enjoyed for those with the time to do it throughout the delightfull harbour – just needed to avoid the commercial traffic and numerous sailboats brought out by the fine weather. It was dreamy Osprey conditions that lead them to a clean sweep 1-2-3 for the day.
The event was noted for its great race management, fabulous weather, friendly hospitality and top class facilities
