2014 Dinghy Park

We've been planning to sort out the dinghy park for some time and when the Hall drained the lake in the summer, it gave us the push we needed -{*}- Well Done and thank you to eyeryone who put so much effort into getting this work done, we now have a dinghy park to be proud of.

Brief Encounter

As Himley Hall was the place where Edward and Mrs Simpson first met, where could be a better location for Dudley Little Theatre Group to film their cut scenes for the romance, Brief Encounter. The pink Mirror looks OK in black and white - if you look carefully, you will see that between shots the leading lady was a far better rower than the leading man.

Bala 2014

After spending the summer teaching hundreds of youngsters and others how to sail, we took the opportunity to have a long weekend camping and sailing at Bala. Trainers and novices alike enjoyed our Fish & Chip Supper and Indoor BBQ in the marquee.

2014 Club Improvements

We are constantly striving to improve our facilities at Himley. When the Water Board had to lower the water level we took advantage and built a complete new bank in the dinghy park in just 3 days

This is Himley Hall Sailing Club

Here are just a few pictures that give a feel for the unique setting of HHSC and our facilities. We are based in the grounds of Himley Hall, the historic home of the Earls of Dudley and our clubhouse and classroom are based in the Earl's thatched boathouse. For the historically minded, the boathouse is where the future Edward VIII began his courtship of Wallis Simpson which was to lead to hi abdication in 1937.
