The club lake and surroundings offer a wonderful environment for you to enjoy your sailing experience and more. The mainly South-westerly winds provide excellent sailing conditions and the well equipped clubhouse, rescue and bespoke training facilities make Bala one of the most popular sailing venues in the UK.
