Go sailing at Queen Mary Reservoir

Amongst the largest inside the M25, Queen Mary Reservoir is in outer London, just to the west of the M3. It covers 700 acres, and has been providing water for thirsty Londoners since 1922.

For some, however, that is not enough, and the Queen Mary Sailing Club have been taking to the water since founded in 1972, and have been providing full programmes of racing and training since then.

Whilst learners must take lessons, competent sailors can apply for day membership for £12 during the week, or £16 on the weekend, and the club has a range of equipment available for hire, providing you can prove your credentials and subject to the discretion of the duty officer.

Admittedly, it all sounds a bit chilly for this time of year but some people love that sort of thing, so if it takes your fancy examine the website at http://www.queenmary.org.uk
