Route descriptions can be downloaded here to give you an idea whether they suit what you'd like to do.

Paper copies of these route descriptions and accompanying route maps are in the green Information File in the magazine rack next to the galley. Please leave them in the transparent sleeves, borrow and return.

If you'd like any 'route cards' emailing to you click This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. These show the elevation profile, distance, likely time it will take and the line of the route shown on a background Ordnance Survey style map. They are pdf files. If you know from reading the descriptions (available from the link above or see short description below) please state which route you want - green, blue, red or pink.

Similarly, the routes can be sent to you in gpx files (not supported by our website so can't simply be downloaded) - just use the email link above. These can be read by many smart-phones or GPS devices:

Green route - 5.1 miles, 1.5 hrs around reservoir and a bit further

Blue route - 6.1 miles, 1hr 45 mins around resevoir and a bit more climbing than the green route

Pink route - 13.3 miles, 2hr 45 mins - Hollingworth Lake, Blackstone Edge, Calderbrook, Wardle

Red route - 9.3 miles, 2hr 45 mins - North over hill to Walsden & back via Calderbrook - most climbing

Here's a link to a fairly hard route on the Pennine Bridleway's website which includes some of our red route.

Please make sure you secure the gate properly when leaving. Tia is organising a new post, hopefully soon!?

the gatepost on entry to the clubhouse carpark fell over today as I was opening the gate. Tia and I extended the chain so it can be locked round the pedestrian gate.

Yeah me too, not been for ages.

I thought autumn was supposed to be a sequence of sou-westerly gales sweeping across. Not been windsurfing for weeks! Is anyone else as fed up as me?

Just me today then? Heading up late morning

davem - 04/11/2019 - 17:39

working at HLWAC tomorrow, so no sailing for me. Thursday is looking windy but far to cold and wet.:-(

John L - 03/11/2019 - 18:01

Hoping to sail Tuesday if forecast holds. Bit cold though!?

Really enjoyed today's working party; it was a great opportunity to get to know other members while working with them. I love hard work; I could sit and watch it for hours!
