Anyone interested interested in sailing and forming some form of club Teesdale sailing club are looking for windsurfers to use selset they sail on grassholme the reservoir below , so we would have sole use of the reservoir I have windsurfed on it lots of times westerly of any sort are very good a long reach in front dam and it catches wind when no we're else does it can be used at anytime no restriction as long as two at time the only down side is it can be bleak and cold due to the height it's at any interest let me know
Cheers Pete

Happy new year pete, have a late Christmas present( ........,,,,,?!;: ) ;) Would have to drive past Derwent to get there, so would never be a regular . Doesn't mean I wouldn't give it a try or come for a event.

Sailed it a few times Pete. Not a bad location and like you say a canny reach in front of the dam in a westerly. Not sure I have big enough kit nowadays as I was rocking 115L Rocket and 6.5m last time I was up there. Presumably it's further than Derwent from Newcastle, which is usually the call if the coast looks marginal or is too rowdy?
