Weecher reservoir from Bingley Moor

 

 The yacht section of KDMES sails model yachts at Weecher Reservoir which is probably the largest water area for sailing model racing yachts in West Yorkshire. It is located in High Eldwick, Bingley on the Otley road between East Morton and Menston. Click here for a map and detailed directions. We meet most Wednesdays and Fridays to sail for fun and there are usually competions on Sundays.If you are interested in sailing why not come and join us?

The lake is very high and exposed, so we advise plenty of warm clothes and strong shoes. Launching is from a small jetty. Should the sun make an appearance, you will be looking straight at it on part of the course, so sunglasses are useful. The clubhouse is in the car park with brewing facilities and toilet. Please note, the reservoir is owned by Yorkshire Water and use of the reservoir and immediate property is regulated by them.
