Don’t hesitate and come down to take advantage of our wonderful selection of kit, experienced and highly enthusiastic instructors and try something exciting and new!

If you love the feel of rays of sunshine on your face, the wind combing your hair and the waves underneath your feet, windsurfing is the right sport for you!


Whether you seek the thrill of riding the elements or just want to try something new, relaxed and fun, come down and join us, everyone is welcome, no matter the amount of previous experience.

We make it our mission to make this wonderful sport accessible to everyone, no matter your level, size, gender or age, be assured, we have a selection of kit for everyone.

If you need a further stamp of approval, Edgbaston reservoir happens to be the home of the biggest student windsurf club in the UK (the Birmingham University Windsurf Club). Make no mistake, it’s no coincidence, its central location, lovely surroundings, accessibility and friendly atmosphere all make the Midlands Sailing Club a perfect hub for windsurfers who are seeking a local spot to perfect their skills or fit in a session into their busy schedule.

Windsurfing is the perfect sport to clear your head, forget about your work load and worries and find escape from reality with no training or competition pressure, it’s a chance to get out, have fun and socialize with some of the best people you could possibly meet.


We have an exciting season scheduled ahead of us, with plenty of adult and kids courses, taster sessions and women specific sessions planned.

We offer beginner and intermediate RYA courses. The start windsurf course is opened to complete beginners, takes 2 days and gives you the ability and confidence to sail by yourself safely and in a controlled manner. The intermediate courses are designed to help you advance further and introduce new exciting elements, such as sailing in higher winds, the thrill of planning, the use of harness and footstraps. We can offer beach starting and carve gybing clinics as well for the more advanced sailors looking to perfect their craft.

If you have achieved a Start windsurf level or above, you may take advantage of our rental scheme and go sailing to perfect your skills at your own pace.

Our female specific sessions (Women on the Water) are on Tuesday nights (4:30 – 7pm), in order to encourage women in watersports, as we’d love to see as many women (and men) on the water as possible and we realize sport in general has still far to go on the gender equality front.

We also have windsurfing sessions for juniors, in the form of both a course (Stage 1,2,3,4) and OnBoard/Team 15 (regular training sessions on Saturday mornings 10-12am). Windsurfing will be also available as a holiday club activity.
