Stoke Newington

The NLSA sails at the West Reservoir Centre, Stoke Newington, Green Lanes, N4 2HA on Sunday mornings all year round and occasionally at other times. As well as general dinghy sailing, we organise racing and informal race training and practice.

Adults and children who have done courses with the Centre, or others who can sail, are welcome to join NLSA. We encourage members to improve their skills and are keen to help people progress through to RYA Instructor, but everyone is welcome to sail "just for fun".

West Reservoir Centre is a centre for watersports boasting excellent shore facilities and a range of dinghies to suit all ages and abilities. Funded by the Lottery and other grants, it is run by the GLL/Better organisation (Greenwich Leisure Ltd) for the London Borough of Hackney. The Centre is an RYA Training Centre and runs activities for schools and community groups, plus courses for adults and young people.
