About Bartley


Bartley Sailing Club is situated on Bartley Reservoir in the South-Western outskirts of Birmingham. Close to the M42 and M5 we have 120 acres of clean drinking water and generally excellent wind conditions. The Reservoir at Bartley Green, Birmingham was built around 1900.

The water in Bartley runs entirely by gravity from the Elan Valley in Wales.

The club was founded when a few hardy souls from existing local sailing clubs began sailing on Bartley Reservoir in the late 1970s. Our facilities have grown from a tiny toilet tent to a modern and comprehensive site including a clubhouse built in the mid-1980s, a large car park, dinghy park, safety boat garage, race control building, slipways and pontoons for easy launching.

We have a professionally-operated bar and catering facilities, plus a large area which we use for training and social events.

Most importantly of all we are a friendly, welcoming (and highly competitive!) bunch and we look forward to seeing you soon, whether it's for racing, learning or even just a drink at the bar!
