Situated on London’s largest reservoir, just inside the M25 with easy train access from London Waterloo, Datchet Watersports is acting as an agent for Queen Mary Sailing Club based at Queen Mary Reservoir, Ashford Road, Ashford. This site blessed with excellent facilities for windsurfing, dinghy sailing and corporate events. These include the vast stretch of water, 700 acres of space to sail on, excellent “galley” or catering facilities, large comfortable viewing lounge, conference/meeting rooms and ample car parking right on site.
Queen Mary Reservoir – The Water is Big!
At over a mile across, it is one of the largest of London’s reservoirs. Queen Mary Reservoir is huge! For windsurfers, when the wind is in the right direction, you can blast for over a mile without turning around! Much further than you would venture out at the coast!
We boast fleets of catamarans that many other clubs cannot accommodate because of their smaller size. High performance asymmetric spinnaker boats have enough room to really stretch their legs!
The Kitchen provide excellent catering and fully-licensed bar facilities. The Galley is open Saturdays & Sundays all year round, Wednesday evenings from May-September. Try one of their fantastic breakfast baguettes, have a coffee and a snack, or something more hearty. The Galley is a “wet area” which you can access whilst still in wetsuits. Great for a hot chocolate when it’s cold, or grabbing a cold drink and an ice-cream when it’s hot!
The caterers can also organise menus for functions on-site. We use the catering for all our corporate events and parties, and we’ve had nothing but compliments. Everything from simple cold buffets, to barbeques and full 3 course dinners.
There are a selection of meeting and conference rooms available for hire and why not add in some Watersports activities as well?
